This curriculum policy supersedes The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 9 and 10: Business Studies, 2006. Beginning in the 2024–25 school year, all business studies courses for Grades 9 and 10 will be based on the expectations outlined in this curriculum. All business studies courses for Grades 11 and 12 will continue to be based on The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11 and 12: Business Studies, 2006. All references to Grades 9 and 10 that appear in that document have been superseded.

The Considerations for program planning and the Cross-curricular and integrated learning sections listed under the Program Planning tab outline important considerations for planning programs in all subjects and disciplines of the Ontario curriculum, Grades 1 to 12. The information provided there sets out current official curriculum policy, and educators must be guided by it in implementing curriculum and in creating the environment in which it is taught.

Important considerations for implementing the Grade 9 Building the Entrepreneurial Mindset course, 2024 (BEM1O), and the Grade 10 Launching and Leading a Business course, 2024 (BEP2O), are provided in each of the course sections.

The most up-to-date course tables and prerequisite charts for business studies are available in the Course description and prerequisite section.

For Grades 11 and 12, refer to The Ontario Curriculum, Grades 11 and 12: Business Studies, 2006.
