On the EE application, under education, there is a questions as follows

Was this degree, diploma or certificate:
  • from a public post-secondary school, such as a college, trade/technical school, university or CEGEP (in Quebec)
  • from a private post-secondary school that operates under the same rules as public schools
  • a diplôme d'études professionnelles (DEP) or an attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP) earned through a qualifying study program of
    at least 900 hours from a private school in Quebec, or
  • a Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate degree from a Canadian private school that can legally award degrees under provincial law. (The student must have been enrolled in a study program that led to a degree as set out by the province.)
My question is this; I graduated from a college in Ontario, therefore do I select Yes or No?

What I find confusing is whether the entire sentence relates to the province of Quebec, or is it only the term CEGEP that relates to Quebec.
"from a public post-secondary school, such as a college, trade/technical school, university or CEGEP (in Quebec)"

In the preceding questions, I selected Ontario as my province of study, but was still presented with this question.

Thanks in advance to anyone that can share some guidance regarding this question.

You will select yes. I also had the same issue.
  • from a public post-secondary school, such as a college, trade/technical school, university or CEGEP (in Quebec
It says public school or Quebec.

You are right, that reads better now that you pointed out the obvious.

Thank You!
