Will I get in trouble if I don't enrol my child in school?

In Ontario, children aged 6 - 18 must attend school.

The Education Act is the law that governs public schools in Ontario. It says that children aged 6-18 must attend school. Many children can begin full day kindergarten program at age 4.

It is important to know that all children aged 6-18 can attend school, regardless of their immigration status or the immigration status of their parents. This is outlined in the Education Act, the law that governs public schools in Ontario.

Many community agencies can help you with registering your child for school. To find help, go to Services Near Me and search for "settlement services" in your area.
