What form do I fill out and where is it?

You can find the exemption form on this page: CLICK HERE
When you get there, click on the word "Homeschooling". A drop-down list will appear with a list of PDF files you can download and print off from your computer. Fill it out, mail it in or drop it off at your local District office. You can start homeschooling that day.

How will I know what subjects and topics to cover?

You can read over the course outlines for the province here. These are the same ones the teachers follow. You are not required to follow them.
Other (briefer) guidleines can be found here. The list is American, but can be easily adapted for Canadians.
As a rule, course outlines are general. They vary from province to province, and even vary between schools. The beauty of homeschooling is you can cover what you like, when you like.
