The Advanced Placement (AP) exams can be used both in university admissions and often for earning university credits before you even arrive on campus. Many Canadian universities give credit for high scores on these exams. Some institutions will use AP exam results in lieu of senior high school courses for determining university admission.
Visit the College Board website’s Canadian page or my list of Ontario universities to see AP credit policies by university. And for all things AP in Canada, including participating schools, exam subjects, and data reports, visit AP Canada.
