All children receive an education

In Canada, the government provides an education for every child, in every province and territory, free of charge. Public education is paid for through taxes and controlled by the provinces and territories.

Public education starts at age four or five, depending on the province or territory in which a child lives. The law states that children must receive an education until age 15 or 16, depending on where they live.

Education is important for success

In Canada, great value is placed on the education of children. Many people in Canada receive a post-secondary education, which is the education a person receives after they graduate from high school.

A more educated population is likely to create greater economic success for a country than a less educated population. Also, studies have shown that the more education a person receives, the more money that person is likely to make through his or her career.

You can help your children become educated by being aware of how education in Canada works.
