Home education legalities in British Columbia

In British Columbia, home based learning is governed by the School Act, Division 4, specifically Sections 12 and 13. You can read the full text of the Act and Regulations on the BC Ministry of Education site (PDF files):

We recommend that you take some time to read the legal information found on the British Columbia Educators' Association web site, as well as the page on Registration vs Enrollment on the website of the North Peace Home Educators Association.
