Each province and territory in Canada has its own Ministry of Education or Department of Education that governs schools within its region. Some Ministries/Departments are responsible for publicly funded schools only, while others also cover private schools and child care centres.

Those who need to develop an anaphylaxis policy are encouraged to verify existing information before getting started.

Existing policies can be compared with those of other boards or provinces for ideas and best practices. Many policies are available on school board and provincial websites.
