­­­­Vancouver, a popular and beautiful city in the Canadian province of British Columbia, has an average population of roughly 603,500 spread across 44.39 square miles of land.  At The Knowledge Academy, we offer 50,000 classroom based training courses throughout the different areas of Vancouver, in order to enhance people’s learning in an array of subject areas.  Education in Canada is generally funded by federal, provincial, and local governments; the system is divided into primary, secondary and post-secondary education and is operated under provincial jurisdiction.  On the whole, there are 190 days in a school year, starting in September and ending towards the last Friday of June.  Some popular and highly regarded universities in Canada include: the University of Toronto (notable alumni including: William Lyon Mackenzie King, Vincent Massey, Donald Sutherland and Lesra Martin), the University of British Columbia (notable alumni including: Eddie Peng, Justin Trudeau and Nardwuar the Human Serviette), and the University of Alberta (notable alumni including: Dayo Wong, George Stanley and Beverley McLachlin).  In Vancouver, it is compulsory for residents under the age of 16 to complete compulsory schooling – from low level elementary (kindergarten + grades 1-7), to high level secondary (grades 8-12); Vancouver’s secondary schools are also commonly subdivided into two groups - starting with junior secondary and then followed by senior secondary level.  In most cases, expatriates of Vancouver will send their children to public schools.  The public schools in Vancouver are generally well-respected – scoring highly in student assessments at an international level, as well as nationally, and students normally have a reputation for positive academic success and achievements. Other residents of Vancouver opt for their children to attend private schools instead; although private schools are few-and-far-between in the area as opposed to other areas of Canada, there is still nonetheless a large private school community, most of which is largely either a religious or international institution.
