Ontario Invests in Education
We Believe in Education
Ontario’s primary and secondary schools place an emphasis on academic excellence including fundamental skills essential for continued learning and provide students the opportunities to prepare them for responsible citizenship and career options.
Highly Skilled Workforce
A variety of technical and vocational institutes, as well as colleges and universities in the Ontario region provide a broad scope of Certificate and Associate’s degree programs in a wide range of fields. Focusing on a particular discipline, these educational programs are often very specific in particular course study.
