As the fifth edition in the State of the Nation: K-12 Online Learning in Canada series, author Michael K. Barbour investigates policies that govern Canadian K-12 distance education. Because Canada was one of the first countries to deliver distance-learning courses, Canada proves to be an interesting and compelling exemplar to study.

Through analyzing its thirteen provinces and territories, Canada offers a wealth of relevant comparisons with other countries/regions of similar population. View this report to survey the level of K-12 distance education across Canada and learn of unique trends, challenges, and current issue briefs.
