Expert Answer

March Break for students varies by province, school board and individual schools. Most public schools have a 1 week March Break, while many private and independent schools do a 2 week break.

Below is a list of March Break (also known as Spring Break) by province, however we suggest that you ask your child's school to be sure.

Ontario - March 12 to 21, 2010
British Columbia - March 6 to 14, 2010
Alberta - March 26 to April 5
Saskatchewan - April 1 to April 11
Manitoba - March 26 to April 5
Quebec - Feb 26 to March 7
New Brunswick - Feb 26 to March 7
Nova Scotia - March 12 to March 21

Many schools run March Break programs if you're looking for childcare during the break. You can also look at the many summer camp programs that offer fantastic March Break Camps.
