    Hello @kurt dupas
    The best thing is to contact the school you want to register them with. They might provide some online courses with the current Covid situation and the need for some children to self isolate (especially if they have been in contact with someone with Covid).

    I suspect that international schools are also more likely to offer such possibilities of remote lessons as some children might be stuck abroad with parents.

    You will find a full list of international schools in Canada here: https://www.expat-quotes.com/guides/canada/education/international-schools-in-canada.htm
    Some of them are located in British Columbia in Vancouver.

    We have also published an article in our magazine about home schooling, providing plenty of tools. Have look here: Home-schooling and remote work for students

    Hopefully the links will be useful. Let us know how it goes!
