Ontario’s prosperity is determined, to a great extent, by its ability to provide a skilled and educated workforce capable of meeting the requirements of business. A key factor for businesses and residents deciding whether or not to locate in Ontario is the availability of quality preschool, elementary, middle and high schools, colleges and vocational training. Ontario fosters lifelong learning so that its citizens can lead more fulfilling and productive lives by providing access to libraries, culture, community events and activities.
