The Ministry of Education develops curriculum policy for all publicly funded schools in Ontario, school boards and schools implement it. Curriculum policy documents identify what students must know and be able to do at the end of every grade or course in every subject.

Curriculum is the “hub” of any learning institution.  In its broadest sense, curriculum refers to the total learning experiences of individuals. This occurs in school and in the community.
