Alberta has one of the world's best education systems. This section will provide you with the details you need for both your child's education and your own.
Children go to school for 12 years, completing both elementary and secondary school. When you arrive, you will need to enroll your children in school.
After Grade 12, post-secondary education is the next step. You may want to consider post-secondary school or look into upgrading your skills. Education can be costly, so there are a number of financial assistance programs that may be available to you.
Finally, you may want to consider taking programs for improving your English prior to beginning an educational program or entering the workforce.
Visit the Government of Alberta Education site for more information about elementary and secondary schooling.
For more information about post-secondary schooling, visit the Enterprise and Advanced Education website.
