Several post-secondary educational institutions across Canada offer aviation diploma courses that include flying training. The pilot instruction is to the regular Transport Canada standards but is complemented by other college courses. Entrance to these schools is limited and candidates must meet certain educational requirements. The cost of training is partially subsidized by the government and is eligible for student loans.

Several certified flying schools listed in the previous section have professional aviation programs associated with post-secondary schools listed here.
