Education in Canada is a very high priority of the government.The Canadian education system ompasses both publicly-funded and private schools, including: community colleges/ technical institutes, career colleges, language schools, secondary schools, summer camps, universities and university colleges.
Education is a provincial responsibility under the Canadian constitution, which means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, education is important to Canadians, and standards across the country are uniformly high. Within the provinces under the ministry of education, there are district school boards administering the educational programs.
Education is compulsory in every province and territory in Canada up to the age of 18.
