Education in Canada falls under the responsibility of the provincial government, and therefor the educational systems between provinces can be slightly different. In British Columbia, the Ministry of Advanced Education regulates and scrutinizes the programs offered by British Columbian institutions, ensuring that all programs at all levels are suitably developed.
