Students may choose to study at a public or private school, but the vast majority of students are enrolled in public school. This is not surprising considering that Canada is home to one of the best public school systems in the world. Canadian students consistently ranked among the top 5 academic performers in the world and number 1 among English speaking countries according to the OECD PISA studies in reading, mathematics and science.
- Canada spends more on education (per capita) than any other country in the G8.
- Over 95% of Canadians choose public school education for their children
- Canada’s public schools have been accepting international students since the 1980’s and have well-developed infrastructure and support including ESL (English as a Second Language) instruction and carefully supervised homestay programs.
- Tuition fees are competitively priced yet provide for a high standard of living.
