I will be moving from Nigeria to Ottawa around January 2019. I intend coming with a dependant that will be 20 years old in July 2019. She will be in SS2 (Grade 11 equivalent) by then. I have read that cut-off age for secondary schools in Canada is 18 years meaning she will be above the bar then. How do we go about her finishing her secondary education and afterwards proceed to the University?

Looking forward to your swift response.

Thanjs and regards.

Hi Tosin,

There are a few schools set up that accommodate for high school learners that are over the age of 18. 

In fact, Ottawa is home to the Adult High School of Ottawa which offers a better standard of education than other facilities aimed at providing a high school education to over 18s.

Otherwise, the Expat Arrivals guide to Ottawa might be useful in getting an overview of life in the city,
