Education in Canada. Reference Series No. 39.
Canadian Dept. of External Affairs, Ottawa (Ontario).
Each province in Canada has executive constitutional responsibility for education within its boundaries, so a single national system of education has not developed. Instead, there are distinct provincial systems that differ in organization, policies, and practices. This booklet describes those features of Canadian education common to most provinces and does not dwell on provincial exceptions. The first section discusses the administration and organization of Canadian education, the school curriculum, types of schools, federal schools, and school in the territories. The second section covers the provision and financing of public elementary-secondary education, universities, community colleges, teacher training, trades training, and adult education. Appendices provide statistics dealing with Canadian education, addresses of territorial and provincial departments of education, and publications on education available from Statistics Canada. (JB)
