The Story of Maple Bear

The idea to develop Maple Bear Canadian schools grew out of the work of the Canadian Education Centre Network (CECN), a non-profit organization supported by the Government of Canada and the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada which was mandated to market Canadian education abroad to attract foreign students to study in Canada.

Maple Bear was born after CECN managers overseas recognized there was a domestic demand for high quality, bilingual Canadian education from emerging middle class parents, many of whom had studied outside of their own countries in general and in Canada in particular.

The first Maple Bear Canadian School to open was in Indirapuram (New Delhi), India in 2005.

In 2007, Maple Bear became a privately owned company with a dozen schools operating in Korea, Brazil and India. Those numbers quickly changed as news of the excellence of Canadian immersion and bilingual education spread, especially among parents who could see the positive outcomes in language, learning and behavior of their children.

Today, there are more than 447 schools in twenty countries with more than forty one thousand students studying at Maple Bear schools worldwide.

We invite you to join the Maple Bear South Asia family as a school owner, a student, a parent, a teacher or a member of the Canadian faculty.

Our goal is to deliver a student-focused learning system in a safe, secure and stimulating environment that prepares students for success at the high school and post secondary level and that instills a passion for lifelong learning. The Maple Bear Program is designed to educate the whole child - physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
