IB World Schools in Canada

Are you looking for an International Baccalaureate World School in Canada? Here you can find a list of Canadian schools that have a profile in the IB World Schools Yearbook.

The schools featured below offer at least one of the IB's four programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), Middle Years Programme (MYP), Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP). You can use the search filter below to look for schools that offer one programme in particular.

Vast and sparsely inhabited, Canada has the world’s most highly educated population and one of its highest immigration rates. Not surprisingly, it is also a magnet for international students. Between 2008 and 2015, international enrolments soared by 92 per cent to 353,000, with nearly one in 10 students admitted to an elementary or high school.

Education in Canada is rich and diverse. There are private and public, religious and secular, day and boarding, coeducational and single-sex schools, as well as English-medium, French-medium and bilingual ones. All types of school admit international students, with one-year pre-university programmes a particular growth area. Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are major centres.  

There are 402 IB World Schools – 182 teach in French, 249 in English and 28 are bilingual in English and French, Canada’s two official languages. A total of 175 schools offer the IB Diploma, while 15 offer all three IB programmes, including Meadowridge School, The York School, Mulgrave and TFS – Canada’s International School. For a full list see the IB's website.

Many provinces provide financial support to private schools, so fees can be lower than in some destination countries.

Public day schools also charge fees to international students and some school boards provide them with a centralised admissions system. Toronto District offers places at 28 secondary schools across the city and students can indicate their top three preferences.

Education is compulsory for 12 years from about age five to 16, with some variation between provinces, which oversee both state and private schools. Year groups and curriculums also vary but standards are tightly regulated by provincial authorities. Parents can check whether schools are accredited with bodies such as the Canadian Educational Standards Institute. 

IB World Schools are part of a thriving international school sector in Canada. For information on all international schools, you can visit: www.internationalschoolsearch.com
