Canadian Methodology

Canada’s education system consistently ranks among the best in the world. In 2018, the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) ranked Canada #1 in the English-speaking world in science, math and reading.

Among the best in the world

Since it became a nation in 1867, Canada has been built upon foundations of respecting differences and recognizing its two official languages: English and French. However, it was by the end of the 1960s that the country, through its “Languages Act”, and through the work of the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism, that bilingualism was truly established as a crucial and central element for inclusion and respect towards all Canadians.

This movement marked the start of a long history of research and dedication to the development of a truly bilingual educational system, capable of developing citizens not only fluent in a second language, but in a second culture.
