Many of the students in Canada have to rely on some type of funding to help pay for their schooling. Some parents made the wise decision to invest in a registered retirement savings plan when the children were very young. Other parents did not have the opportunity to do this as they may have been tight on funds. The government of Canada recognizes this and has implemented different programs to assist students.
High School Students
Canada has provided a home to many different ethnic groups. Many of which as yet have not managed the language. Or there are students who need and want to learn a second language. In today’s business world a second language can often land a graduate that position they want that is facing a lot of competition. The government offers a five-week program to learn the second language.
Extra Education for Aborigninals
Many in the aboriginal community have a keen interest in their culture and in museum work. There is a training program offered through the Canadian government that will give them opportunities to explore these fields.
The Canadian armed forces are always looking for new recruitment. This is a field that many young people in the aboriginal community are interested in. In order to prepare them for such a career, the Government offers an introductory program based on military training.
These are just a few examples of the additional learning opportunities that are available. In Canada, there are many different levels of students. There are those who have been out of the workforce for some time. There are re-entry educational programs to assist them.
For mature students there are some great opportunities for these individuals to go back to school on either a full time or part time basis. For some there is financial aid available to assist them with the cost of the educations and perhaps with their living expenses while in school.
