Brief Overview of these Three Types

Ontario Colleges

Traditional Colleges such as Humber, etc. These are funded by the Government of Ontario. They are usually the host expensive overall educational institution after factoring in tuition, books, housing and overall length of course. They are also the most prestigious.

School Boards

The least expensive option, school boards are offered locally throughout the province. They are the cheapest, and usually the lowest stress option. Some employers place these certifications on a lower level vs traditional colleges.

Private Colleges

An examples is Everest College. These schools can be the most expensive, depending on the institution. They typically have the most flexible scheduling, with accelerated classes and in some places, weekend only classes. Some are trust worthy and smiled upon; others are seen in a less than fashionable light.
