Provinces and territories

Canada is divided into provinces and territories, each with their own government. The Constitution of Canada gives the provinces jurisdiction over education and, under the federal laws that created them, the three territories have comparable delegated powers. As such, provinces and territories are responsible for setting and regulating education standards for their respective education institutions.

No matter what city or province you choose to study in, you can be assured your program, curriculum, and the degree, diploma or certificate you receive reflects a standard and quality of education that is recognized all over the world.

Find a program that is right for you and enjoy the freedom of knowing no matter what education institution you attend, you’re getting a quality education you can be proud of!
