Public Education in Canada


Provincial and Territorial Departments and Ministries
Responsible for Public Education in Canada

Please note that public education is operated by the Provinces in Canada not the Federal Government.

There are a number of fraud and scam internet sites that offer ESL, Tesl, Tefl, Tesol and online programs that the criminals claim are Canada national Ministry of Education certified. There is no such department and anyone claiming this certification or recognition or approval is a fraud trying to misrepresent.
