For Independent Schools In BC

FISA BC is a non-profit society registered with the Corporate and Personal Property Registries office, Ministry of Finance of BC, Victoria, British Columbia. There are currently 292 independent schools that are voluntary members of FISA BC, representing 91% of the total independent school enrolment (2012/2013).

Quick Facts

Distributed Learning is an area of growth in both public and independent schools. Since 2008, province-wide enrolment in DL courses has risen 138% from 33,000 to over 78,000.
Group 2 independent schools have higher operating costs than the public school districts in which they are located, and therefore receive only 35% of the public school grant for operating costs.

2016 FISA BC Convention

To celebrate 50 years of voluntary collaboration among independent schools, FISA BC is presenting the 2016 Convention on February 4th & 5th, 2016.   A limited number of general admission tickets have been released.
