    So, enrolling in a british school in canada for A levels is my best choice?

    Either that, or complete your A-Levels (or equiv.) and then apply as an international student to a Canadian University.

    If I were you, I'd stay in the UK to study A levels and consider going to university in Canada after that. However, be aware you cannot get a student loan for Canadian university, so you will need to pay fees upfront.

    Just GCSEs no, with AS Levels, potentially, with A Levels, definitely.

    But be aware that with the new AS/A Level structure not all sixth forms/colleges will be entering students for AS Level qualifications, so you would probably be best off complete A Levels.

    Finding a school in Canada to do A Levels at would be pretty difficult. COBIS doesn't have any schools there, for example.
    And as their system is so different, transferring into a Canadian High School to complete a High School Diploma could also be complicated.
