Over the last few years, BC's educational curriculum has been undergoing a significant change:
- A redesigned Kindergarten to grade 9 curriculum was introduced in 2016/17
- A new grade 10 curriculum is being implemented in 2018/19
- Revised grades 11 and 12 curriculum will be introduced in 2019/20

The new curriculum reinforces strong foundations in reading and writing, number and financial literacy, as well as visual and digital literacy. Core competencies, including collaboration, critical and creative thinking, and personal and social responsibility also play a big part in the redesigned learning, as does a greater emphasis on Indigenous world views, culture and perspectives.
