    Canada's Education System

    Canada’s education system is maintained to a high standard by each of the provinces or territories. The Council of Ministers of Education is a forum for education ministers to discuss matters related to education, coordinate education activities, and share information. Canada boasts one of the highest rates of postsecondary education in the world, with 6 of every 10 adults between the ages of 25 and 64 having completed some form of postsecondary education.

    Canada’s education system draws students from all over the world to study. In 2006, more than 80,000 international students were enrolled in education courses in Canada, making up 7.7% of the student population.



    There are several classes to postsecondary education in Canada. An educational institution may be ’recognized,’ ’authorized,’ ’registered,’ or ’licensed,’ or not regulated at all. ’Recognized’ or ’authorized’ institutions may grant academic credentials through their provincial or territorial governments. The government monitors ’registered’ or ’licensed’ educational institutions. Unregulated educational institutions in Canada are privately run commercial enterprises with no regulations. It is important to know the states of an educational institution in order to understand the quality of a certain program.

    Universities in Canada

    Universities in Canada range in size from a few hundred to 35,000 students, and offer over 10,000 high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs. A Bachelors degree program in Canada usually lasts from 3 to 4 years, sometimes with an extra year for honours programs.

    Masters degree programs in Canada generally run for 2 years, and doctorate research and study goes on for 4 to 5 years. Some universities also offer diploma and certificate education programs.

    Besides offering education courses, universities in Canada usually have athletics, accommodation, counselling, scholarships, study-skills workshops, and career-placement services for its students.

    Universities and university colleges in Canada are almost always publicly funded with varying tuition fees. The school year runs from September through May, and is divided into either semesters or trimesters. University education programs in Canada are usually offered in either French or English. Fluency in both languages is not necessary to attend university.

    Degrees earned at universities in Canada have the same merit as those earned in the US or other commonwealth countries like Australia and the United Kingdom. It is often possible for a student to continue their education which was started in another country at a school in Canada, and vice versa, depending on the university.
