It was recently announced that the Canadian GED® Exam Series is ending on May 2024.
The GED Program is being replaced by a new program named the Canadian Adult
Education Credential (CAEC) in the spring of 2024. GED®
tests will continue to be available until May 3, 2024. CAEC is a very similar program with a similar process that offers the 5 core subjects with Canadian content and it will allow you to complete
your High school Equivalency diploma.
Our centres are still operating and
you may register to participate in one of our designated classrooms or participate through distance learning online. If you have any questions about how this could impact your ability to earn your high school equivalency,
NOTE: The safety of all learners and staff is paramount. Precautions are in place to limit the spread of COVID-19. The number of writers has been reduced to provide increased
spacing between desks. All writers must wear a mask when not at their seat and maintain social distancing whenever possible. Hand-sanitizer will be available in the classroom and
writers may keep a small, personal hand sanitizer at their desk.
