There are over 800,000 children enrolled in Catholic schools in Canada. Most of those are in just three provinces: Ontario, Alberta and Saskatchewan. That’s because they are the only provinces that fully fund Catholic education as an alternative public education system. In the remaining provinces, Catholic schools are either fully private or receive partial operating funds on a per pupil basis.
