Online Learning

Student registration now available on

The Government of Saskatchewan has established a new Treasury Board Crown Corporation to oversee centralized online education in the province through a planned acquisition of Sun West School Division’s Distance Learning Centre.

The Distance Learning Centre will be called the Saskatchewan Distance Learning Corporation (Sask DLC). It will operate as the head office and main hub for online education in the province.


1. General Information

This centralized approach is starting in the 2023-24 school year and will provide Kindergarten to Grade 12 classes through the Moodle platform to any Saskatchewan school student who chooses to study online.

The new online learning model will provide students, teachers and families with a consistent user experience and flexible learning opportunities, no matter where in Saskatchewan they live.

Government heard from parents that they wanted assistance when supporting their children’s online learning experience. Government believes having a consistent approach to a universal platform and registration system will provide that support, flexibility and accessibility to families across the province.

The Government of Saskatchewan first announced its plans for a new online learning policy in the province in the 2021 Throne Speech. The Ministry of Education has been consulting with school divisions and other stakeholders since that time as part of the preliminary planning process in developing a new online learning model.

The Government remains committed to ensuring there is a seamless transition to the new model as this initiative progresses to discuss implementation plans including considerations around staffing, technology and funding.

The new online learning model will provide greater choice and more opportunities for all students in the province, while ensuring that all students accessing online learning are receiving a consistent high quality education experience.

Sask DLC will receive funding through a combination of tuition fees for the number of courses that students are enrolled in and a grant from the Province. School divisions will continue to receive funding for local students that are accessing courses through the Sask DLC.

The funding approach ensures that school divisions retain funding to be able to provide their students with local supports and services. The Sask DLC will also have staff that will provide supports directly to students taking online courses.

Sask DLC will work collaboratively with school divisions and families in the best interest of students. This includes ensuring a connection between the students’ local school which is responsible for course planning to enable students to reach their educational goals. The expectation is that Sask DLC and the students’ local school division will work together to ensure any online learning courses make sense for that student and that it fits into their learning plan. However, the intent is not to prevent any students from accessing an online course that they are interested in taking, only to ensure that it works for that student and their circumstances.


2. Parents and Students

All Saskatchewan students will have access to the central online learning provider. As with in-class learning in Saskatchewan, the new online school will provide free education for its students up to the age of 22. Adult students will have access to courses as well and will pay tuition for each course.

Students will register with the new school and then be connected to their local school division, which will provide tuition to the Sask DLC. Visit the Sask DLC website to register and learn about the more than 180 online courses available.

School divisions, together with the Sask DLC, will provide local support for students such as speech-language pathologists and educational psychology assessments. School divisions will also provide student activities such as driver’s licence training, graduation ceremonies and extra-curricular activities, including arts and sports.


3. Teachers

With the main Sask DLC office located in Kenaston, nine additional regional campuses will be established in the communities of Estevan, La Ronge, Moose Jaw, Neilburg, Nipawin, Prince Albert, Saskatoon, Swift Current and Yorkton. Staffing opportunities in the main office and regional campuses are now available at

Sask DLC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Saskatchewan Teachers’ Federation (STF) ensuring all Sask DLC teachers will be STF members, providing teachers access to a pension, supports and benefits.


4. Online Learning Outside the Public Division

Three organizations are approved to offer online education to Saskatchewan students for the 2023-24 school year, in addition to the new Sask DLC. Regina Catholic Schools, Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools and FlexED have met the requirements of the Provincial Quality Assurance Framework, ensuring that all students choosing to study online are receiving a high-quality education.
