What are the Private School Expos?

As Canada's largest exhibitions of private schools, we've helped tens of thousands of families in the last twenty years. Our annual expos take place in five Canadian cities: Calgary, Montreal, Oakville, Ottawa, and Toronto.

We understand that not all schools are the same, neither are all the children. In fact, many are fundamentally different from your preconceived ideas. At the expos, you’ll learn about your expanding education choices, hear from experts, and discover new ways to fund your children’s education.

You will gain insider knowledge by meeting with admission teams from many top private and independent schools in your area. Our popular panel discussions on Choosing and Applying to Schools, as well as Financial Aids & Tax Benefits will help you better pinpoint what’s the best possible option for your child.

About Our Kids

With the 20th anniversary year of Our Kids Private School Guide, we’d like to tell you a little about our goals and history.

Quite simply, our purpose has always been to showcase the private school community to Canadians in search of better education.

Each year, we connect with leading experts to study the current landscape of private schools. We also speak to staff, alumni, parents and students about their experiences – and make your school research as easy as possible.

Initially, the School Guide was in print magazine form only. Twenty years later, OurKids.net has become a Canadian institution. With 2.4 million families scouring this powerhouse website and Expos every year, we are the #1 private school resource.

We connect families face-to-face with the leaders of Canada's top-ranked private and independent schools. we’re looking forward to helping millions more over the next 20 years!
