Canadian Homeschool Laws

Thanks to many amazing homeschoolers across Canada who volunteered their time to put together a series of blog posts for us on the homeschooling laws of their province/territory. We appreciate having a real life perspective of how things work. We are still missing a few locations and would love your help to finish this series off. If you live in one of the non-linked provinces, please contact us to find out how your blog post can be added! Thanks!

    We really need the homeschooling laws for New Brunswick.How are we suppose to know what our rights are as parents and homeschoolers in New Brunswick if there is nothing out there letting us know?

      Hi Joanne..We do have the links posted to the NB site which tells you what the NB school board expects from parents with regards to homeschooling. I will also post the link here http://www.gnb.ca/0000/publications/curric/hsib.pdf which will take you there. Also on the bottom of the NB page there are links to various support groups in the province. Hope this helps! -Lee

      Also the person who offered to do the NB Homeschool Laws for us couldnt’ do it. If you are from NB and wouldn’t mind doing a quick blog on homeschooling in your province we’d appreciate it. -Lee

    Hello,
    Does a parent have to have some kind of certificate before going about homeschooling?
    Thank you.

    I’m trying to find out what the laws, or rules, are for homeschooling in the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Is it possible to get links for them, please? Thanks!!

  5. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?

    Thanks a lot!

    My son would be going into Grade 5 now. We are currently in between a move. I would consider strongly with Homeschooling. How affordable is it? I live in ON. I realize you have to pay for a Membership first, but how high are the rest of the costs for the rest of the school year?

    Hello, my daughter is only one but I’m already expecting another child and have been interested in homeschooling ever since my education suffered due to the very lax way schools, government and the law deal with bullying….from both peers and teachers. So, I have decided to get as much information as possible to make an informed choice of whether or not to homeschool. Help!!!

    I am looking at Homeschooling my daughter. She is in Grade 3 right now in a public school. What is the first step I need take. Can anyone give me some guidance ?

  12. Cambry Charlotte says:

    I just took my 10 yr old out of grade 5. I will be home schooling from now on. I want to start grade 6 curriculum in the fall. I’m trying to finish out grade 5 with homeschooling. Does he need credit for grade 5 before 6 in the fall?

  13. Cambry Charlotte says:

    Also will he be tested periodically by the province? And do I have the legal right to ask public school for all of his school records, from Kindergarten to 5?
    Thank you for this resource!
