ELIGIBILITY to English school

Your children could be eligible for English education! The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board can facilitate that process and help you to determine if your children are eligible to attend an English school.

Did you know that a child is eligible if:

  • The mother or father is a Canadian citizen who has received the major part of his/her primary school instruction in English in Canada;
  • The grandfather or grandmother is a Canadian citizen who has received the major part of his/her primary school instruction in English in Canada;
  • The mother or father is a Canadian citizen and their child has received or is receiving primary or secondary instruction in English in Canada and that such education is a major part of his/her education; the siblings of such a child are also eligible for English instruction;
  • A child has severe learning disabilities and instruction in English can facilitate the learning process;

Please Remember

  • Only students who are eligible for English instruction can attend a Sir Wilfrid Laurier school.
  • Students may not attend any Sir Wilfrid Laurier school until they have been confirmed eligible or obtained provisional acceptance for English instruction.
  • Students with an Eligibility Certificate for a temporary stay must be renewed prior to expiration.
