GPA stands for Grade Point Average in Canada. It varies by: Province, Level of Education (e.i secondary/high school, college, university), Institution (e.i., McGill, Mohawk college, University of Lethbridge, Lasalle college) and Faculty within the institution (e.i. faculty of Science, faculty of Medicine).
