Education law covers the laws and regulations that governing the delivery of education in Canada, including the administration and operation of educational institutions in each province, instructional methods, program content (curricula and materials), and mode of delivery (e.g. in person or online).

This area of law encompasses issues relating to school faculty, staff, and students, including school discipline and discrimination based on race, color, national original, sex, or disability in violation of the Human Rights legislation in each province. Education is within the jurisdiction of each province across Canada, as opposed to being federally regulated, although the growth of online or “distance” education has made the delivery of content much more “borderless”.
