  5. From the history of Canada

1. Canada is a federation of ten provinces and three territories. Under the Canadian constitution, provincial governments have exclusive responsibility of all levels of education. There is no ministry or department of education at the federal level.

2. The school system is divided into three phases. Elementary begins at grade 1 until 5 (or pupils who are 6 until they reach 10 years old). Some elementary schools also include a middle school or junior school for grades 6-8 (ages 11-13). Pupils then join the secondary school (sometimes called high school) for grades 9 to 12 (ages 14-18), though in Quebec it is only until grade 11. The curriculum involves both academic and vocational subjects, which gives the pupils credits to enable them to enter universities or colleges once they graduate from high school.

3. Postsecondary education is very popular in Canada as it has the highest postsecondary education participation rate in the world, with over 2.5 million Canadians enrolled in full-time or part-time postsecondary education. Canadian students pay tuition fees to attend colleges and universities. Colleges mainly offer vocational programs leading to certificates and diplomas whereas universities offer academic subjects leading to degrees. At the post-secondary level, Canada offers a range of education institutions: University, University Colleges, Community Colleges, Career Colleges or Technical Institutes.

4. Canada has a large selection of universities located in both urban and rural settings in every region of the country. Canadian universities are largely publicly funded; as a result they are of a consistently high quality, regardless of location or area of study. Universities offer a broad range of courses and a full range of degrees from undergraduate to doctorates, and can also offer certificates and professional degrees. The universities are internationally known for the quality of teaching and research.

5. University colleges combine Canadian university and college traditions, with a strong base of applied and academic programs offered in campus environments. University colleges offer students a wide range of program choices of either academically-oriented university degree programs or the more practically-oriented college diplomas and certificates. They also may offer combined degree/diploma programs and university transfer programs.

Community colleges have the primary function of responding to the training needs of business, industry and the public service sectors. They offer professional programs of 1 to 3 years (often including a work term) that are highly applicable in the job market.

6. Career Colleges and Technical Institutes are privately owned institutions that offer training programs that provide students with practical skills for the job market after a short period of instruction. Students seeking short-term training programs in multimedia, film studies, computer/internet studies, graphic design and hospitality and the like apply to career colleges. The emphasis at these institutions is on practical skills and some may specialize in specific areas such as business, computers and secretarial skills.
