Canadian Curriculum List

People are always asking me for curriculum options for Canadians. That has been the goal of this blog – to share Canadian resources, but sometimes, a simple list is better. Here are some Canadian curriculum options for you to consider.

    I am curious as to what the government expects from us homeschoolers. What actions must be took, to attain a grade 12 equivilancy in Canada? Or how would I find that out? I really want to use My Fathers World Curriculum, but I live in Alberta. Any help would be great! Thanks,

      1. Hi, I am from AB too. Can you suggest an Alberta-Based Curriculum that I can use for my kids? And also, I would appreciate if you could connect me to your friend from AB. Thank you so much!

        1. Hi Dianna,

          I don’t know of any “AB Specific” curriculum. Most resources are either US or Canadian (or elsewhere). If you want to create a curriculum that follows the AB guidelines, take the curriculum outcomes by the government and you can piece something together. 🙂

          I wil pop you an email.

  2. I am very new to this “Homeschool world” as my children have been getting bullied so bad I had no choice but to take on the Homeschooling challenge… Not 100% sure how to begin, any ideas?

    1. Hi Nicole,
      If you haven’t already, click on the “New? Start Here” option at the top of the page. It will take you to a page with all kinds of getting started information – such as my “How to Homeschool in Canada” book and some of the top FAQs I’m asked. That would be my first suggestion on the step to getting going. 🙂 If you need any specific help, just pop me an email (thecanadianhomeschooler@gmail.com)
      Thanks!

  3. I am so glad that I found your page. I am new to homeschooling and I am considering homeschooling my children. We would begin at the preschool level. Furthermore I am looking for a Christian based Canadian homeschool curriculum. Does that exist? Thanks in advance.

  4. I just discovered the Math Smart books for high school (grade 9 is available now and grades 10-12 will be available in January 2018). These are produced by Popular Books in Richmond, Ontario. So why do you have Math Smart crossed out (strike thru) in the list above? Do you not like them? I had to pull my son out of high school (grade 9) because he was not coping with the transition from elementary school at all well. So I am putting together my own high school homeschooling programming. Is there anyone else who is homeschooling high schoolers in Canada? I would love to hear from you. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for sharing their new resources. 😀 No, they aren’t crossed out because I don’t like them. Strikeouts usually mean they are marked as a broken link – so it may be out of date. Thanks for letting me know. I haven’t had the time to go through my link list recently .

  5. Thanks for sharing! I am looking into starting homeschooling from preschool and I haven’t found any curriculum in Canada that I like. Has anyone tried the Timberdoodle? I’m very much interested in their program but it’s very expensive and it’s not in Canada. Any thoughts? We recently moved to Quebec from Ontario. So I will need to get some French tutoring for my daughter too. Is ther anyone here from Quebec who knows a preschooler curriculum? Thanks!

    1. Hi MB,
      I haven’t used Timberdoodle personally, but I know lots of people seem to like it (even thought it’s expensive!) Quebec is tricky and I don’t know all the rules and such, so I’d recommend connecting with the HSLDA or the ACEQ, etc to find out what rules exactly you should be following for homeschooling choices. In terms of homeschooling in preschool, you don’t really need a curriculum – life learning is one of the best ways to learn together. Reading, baking, exploring nature, playing games, doing art, etc. They are little learning sponges at that age! Get them out to hear their community in French and you might be surprised what they pick up on their own. 🙂
      If you are on Facebook, you are welcome to join Homeschool Swap: Canada and see if anyone has any recommendations for a program for you though. 🙂 That group is filled with great wisdom, experience, and mentorship. 😀
      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. I am having trouble signing up so that I can view the Ontario Curriculum Checklist. The box that I am asked to fill out has no words or questions. Any suggestions?

  7. Zorbit’s Math Adventure (www.zorbitsmath.com) is a Canadian-made game-based learning program for K-3 math! There’s a version for French Immersion launching in September 2018 as well :).

  8. Hi. I also tried to sign up for your email series and the ebook, but the area for name and email is unclear. I even tried the link you gave Corttney in 2017 and had the same problem. Thank you for all you do.

    1. Hi Yolande,
      If you are looking for the How to Homeschool in Canada ebook – check out this link: https://thecanadianhomeschooler.com/start/ Hopefully the sign up form will work for you.
      I didn’t realize the link for that sign up page was still active, but the reason it isn’t working is because I moved all the checklists and all my printables to a learning centre where people can make their own account. It’s all here: https://shop.thecanadianhomeschooler.com/library

      Sorry for the hassle.
      Thanks!
      Lisa Marie.

  9. My daughter is 10 years old and is supposed to be starting grade 5 this September 2019. We are in the process of moving and unfortunately the buyer of our home backed out of a firm sale on the day of closing. Our house is now on the market once again. We are moving across the country. However school is starting here, my daughter does not want to attend and I’m not sure what to do I’ve been toying with the idea of homeschooling prior or at least doing something to fill the gap in the meantime but I despite being over educated by most people’s standards I have little knowledge in this area. I’d appreciate any feedback from anyone who would be able to provide some help with regards to what might be a good way to either fill the gap or start educating my daughter entirely from home online. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies, Patricia

    1. Hey Patricia,

      Thanks for your question. Sorry to hear that the house fell through – I’m sure that’s frustrating! I’m not sure where you are moving from or to, but if you are just looking for something to do until you move and get settled, you don’t really need to invest in a lot of curriculum or resources. You can just use things like Khan Academy for Math, AllinOneHomeschool.com for things like science and language – it’s up to you! You could also just use this time and read really great books together, watch lots of documentaries, or do a research project on something she really loves.

      If you have more questions, feel free to pop me an email : thecanadianhomeschooler@gmail.com

      All the best with your moving adventures.
