If someone wanted to teach Music in Canada what could they expect?

Am I right in saying High School pupils elect to take Band, Orchestra or Choral; is one of these compulsory?

What of music education in Elementary Schools?

Please comment on perceived standards of education/schooling in Canada as well as more specific Music teaching. For comparison, I'm teaching in the UK and am looking around the Vancouver Island region...

All opinions appreciated,
