The Our Kids Private Education School Fair is the best-attended
school fair in Canada, providing a unique opportunity to those
attending to be able to explore a plethora of Canadian schools
beyond the public education system, all in one place. Families
will be able to acquire information for each school as well as
speak directly to representatives.
According to the Ministry of Education, government spending on
the public school system in Ontario is $17.2 billion, spread over
4800 elementary and secondary institutions. This figure is
still millions of dollars short of the ideal. With government
spending on public education limited, scrutiny over the academic
standards and safety of public schools continues to grow.
On the other hand, funding for private and independent schools
is acquired through private resources. As a result, these
institutions tend to have better facilities and a more conducive
environment for learning. Such popular examples of private
and independent schools as Montessori, Waldorf, Gifted, Boarding
and Bilingual, have now become a viable alternative to families
of all backgrounds. For further information about the fair
