Default Children attending school in Canada

Can anyone help me, we are coming to Canada on a TWP with children of 8 & 10. We would like them to go to school, can they go to school as part of my husband having the TWP or do they need to apply for a study permit?

Anyone elses experience would be great help.

Thanks

Hi there at the Port of Entry ask for a visitors Record for children,
This will allow children to school and there is no cost for this.
Hope this helps.

We are in Ontario, and yes you just get a visitor record for the kids, in Ontario you don't need a study permit. Have you applied for WP or are you applying at POE?

The school will need to see these, to make sure that your kids ate eligible to attend school. They may want to see your husbands WP, we have three kids, two different schools, one wanted to see OH WP and the other didn't.

Judging by others reports here its variable, some school boards dont care, some require a study permit. Most watertight advice is to check the expectations of whichever school board you intend to use at your intended destination. They will probbaly be more interested in vaccination records than immigration status though, as that's legally required by most provinces.
