In Manitoba, parents* may choose to homeschool their children.

The Homeschooling Office within the Independent Education Unit of Manitoba Education administers homeschools and supports homeschooling families throughout the province.

* The term parents refers to both parents and guardians, and is used on this website with the recognition that in some cases only one parent or another family member may  be involved in a child's education.

Homeschooling is when parents choose to be responsible for their child’s education and not have their child attend a public or independent school. When parents choose to homeschool their child, they are responsible for obtaining resources and materials for the program of study. Provincial funding is not available to families who homeschool.

Parents and guardians are kindly asked to inform the Homeschooling Office if, at any time during the school year, they decide to transfer a child from a homeschooling program to a school. This will help ensure accurate records are maintained.

Homeschooling 2020-2021 Student Notification Forms are being processed. Confirmation of notification letters are being mailed to families who meet homeschooling requirements.

Please contact the Homeschooling Office by phone at 205-945-8138, toll free 1-800-282-8069 ext. 8138, or by email at homeschooling@gov.mb.ca if you require your homeschooling family number prior to receiving your confirmation of notification letter.

Please note: Some families receiving a confirmation of notification letter have received an email communication from the Homeschooling Office asking them to clarify their program outline on their 2020 January Progress Report.
