In Ontario, schooling until 18 is free if you go to the public or catholic schools. Although, in the catholic schools you will have to buy a uniform.

"Free" is, of couse, not realy free. ;-) We have to pay fees for gym, student council and so on. Is about $60-90/year.
And if they go on a field trip, you have to pay that too. Like $35 to go to the theatre in Toronto by bus (30' drive), or $15 to go to the movies by bus.

Don't know how that is in NB.

(and of course you always pay for schooling, even if you don't have kids, through the property taxes)

hi many thanks for your reply, yes in the uk you pay for all trips too unless you get state benefits of course. it does say its compulsary to leave at 18, so i am assuming its free till 18 then when you go onto further education you pay like our universities.
many thanks x
