International Education Overview
Congratulations on your decision to consider moving to British Columbia, Canada to further your education.
The Dogwood certificate you can earn in British Columbia has high academic regard around the world. There are many good reasons to choose the Sunshine Coast School District as your home for the academic year. The Sunshine Coast offers an excellent education experience. It is a very safe and friendly community with a great deal to offer outside of classroom time.
The Sunshine Coast is a ribbon community approximately 100 kilometres in length with four high schools. Recreation opportunities include water sports, winter sports, hiking and mountain biking. If you need access to a big city, Vancouver is just a 40 minute ferry ride away and gives you easy access to an incredible number of opportunities without having to commit to big city living.
The School District is within the traditional territories of both the shíshálh Nation and the Skwxwú7mesh Nation with approximately 3,300 students.

A Tribute to the Sunshine Coast
This video created by Dolf Vermeulen Creative, sponsored by Rachel Dempster Real Estate, and narrated by Rita Poulsen, Indigenous Education Teacher at Kinnikinnick Elementary and Chatelech Secondary, expresses beautifully how grateful and honoured we are to live, learn, play and work on the unceded territories of the Skwxwú7mesh Nation and the shíshálh Nation.
