How to Homeschool in Canada ebook

Are you wondering how to homeschool in Canada?  These days, the homeschooling movement is on the rise, with more and more people accepting it as a viable option for educating their children.

On a regular basis, I get emails and messages asking me for advice on what steps are needed to get started homeschooling in Canada. The problem is that most of the time, parents just don’t know where to begin. A search for more information is usually challenging, and often the information they find is complicated and hard to filter through. They feel overwhelmed and confused.

Now you can find all the information that you need together in one easy-to-read guide. How To Homeschool in Canada I looked through all of the main questions that people ask when they first start homeschooling: (What do I have to do to get started?, Where do I get curriculum?, Is there a homeschool community near me?) and have attempted to answer those questions through a compilation of information that I’ve gathered to help you as you look into and/or start the journey of homeschooling. My goal for this book is to make that first step of homeschooling seem less like a giant leap into the unknown and more like a safe and easy path to success. Hopefully, it will make how to start homeschooling in Canada understandable, less overwhelming, and more enjoyable a journey for you.

What is in this book?

  • Know the reasons – examining the “why” behind your homeschool decision
  • Understand the rules – the provincial laws and regulations
  • Support Systems – how to find them online and in-person
  • Choosing curriculum – exploring learning styles, where you can buy it, and some Canadian resources & some info about homeschooling through high school
  • Planning tools – tips to help every day homeschooling
  • Never Stop Learning – what we (the parents) need to learn

Plus it includes lots of resources that I have personally used and recommend.

    I am a single mom of eight and I have children with great knowledge of some subjects and struggle with other subjects. When people say all kids are their own people, they weren’t kidding. I hope I can learn how to get started with homeschooling because with the class sizes at my children’s schools being so packed, I fear that they will not get the help they need to overcome their individual struggles. Thank you for sharing your knowledge that will help my family.

    Please can you help me develop my sons curriculum, it’s going to be all online learning as I don’t want the hassle of printing off work for him to do, he does so much better with online learning, thank you.

    He is grade one in Ontario.

      Hi Suzanne,
      I think we chatted a bit on email last night. 🙂 Hopefully one of the ideas I had for you there will work.

    Hey Lisa Marie, I’ve tried signing up for the newsletter with 2 different email addresses but haven’t received anything for either. I’d really like to read your homeschooling in Canada ebook.

    • by LisaMarie Posted May 9, 2016 12:34 pm

      Ack, I’m sorry about that. They recently did an update and it stopped my sign up forms from working. It should be fixed now – I hope! Please try again. Thanks!

          What is happening when you try to sign up? Everything looks like it’s working on my end and my test email sign up worked. I’m not sure what’s going on? I’m going to email you and we can try to get you signed up. Sorry about the hassle.

    Hi there! I tried signing up, but it kept taking me to this ConvertKit site? Not sure if this is the right spot or not?

    • by LisaMarie Posted January 8, 2018 7:36 am

      I’m so sorry that the signup form wasn’t working! I *think* I’ve fixed it now. I apologize. Please let me know if you still have troubles.

    Hi Lisa,
    I just signed up for your newsletter. Does this apply to expats. I am going to be homeschooling my 5 year old and we will be living in Canada for three years on a work visa from the US.

    • by LisaMarie Posted April 1, 2018 6:16 am

      Hey Jade,
      Thanks for signing up. In general, as far as I know, you just need to follow the rules / requirements for the province that you will be moving to. (Of course, this isn’t legal advice…)
      Enjoy your time in Canada. 😀
