Canada is widely known for spending more per capita on its education system, than any other country in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Canadian universities and institutions are widely known for providing superior quality of education.

There are a large number of universities in Canada, which provide high quality education to students. Along with universities, there are also several other community colleges and technical institutions which provide vocational programs to get a job. These universities and institutions offer over 8,000 programmes at 150 public institutions.

Canadian universities have been a host to a large student population from around the world. Students gather to Canada, because Canadian universities deliver the best knowledge to the students.

Students who want a job can enroll themselves in community colleges and technical institutions, as the vocational programmes offered by them last for one to three years.

Canada is one of the world’s top education performers and is the top OECD country in spending per student on public postsecondary education. Students score high on international tests reflecting the dedication each jurisdiction has on the quality of our education system.

In Canada, post-secondary education is the responsibility of provincial and territorial governments, and in each province and territory there are laws, policies and procedures that govern the operation of education institutions. The basic structures of provincial and territorial education systems across Canada are similar. Each has 3 tiers — elementary, secondary, and postsecondary; all provide universal, free elementary and secondary schooling for Canadian students.

Each jurisdiction has its own quality assurance mechanisms that are used in combination to ensure quality in the country’s wide range of post-secondary institutions (Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials, 2011). This ensures Canada’s academic credentials continue to be valued worldwide.
