<!-- copy material from VISCED/Re.ViCa wiki -->
In Canada, almost alone among countries in the world, education at all levels is so completely devolved to the provinces that there is not and cannot be a Minister of Education for Canada. (The wikipedia article on [ Education in Canada] gives more details including details of the residual federal responsibilities. See also [[CMEC]].)

With the earlier caveat about the devolved approach to education, here are the basic facts. Education in Canada is generally divided into '''Elementary''' (Primary School, Public School), followed by '''Secondary''' (High School) and '''Post Secondary''' (University, College). Within the provinces under the a ministry of education(primary/secondary), there are district school boards administering the educational programmes.
