Our Community Partners

Our Community Partners

Teach For Canada strives to represent a new kind of partnership between a non-profit organization and a First Nations community. We recognize that there have been many one-sided relationships in First Nations education within Canada's history, and we have attempted to build a new model for working together; one built on trust, transparency, and an understanding that the process is - and will always be - community-directed.

At the present time, Teach For Canada works with Cree, Ojibwe, and Oji-Cree communities in Treaty 3, 5, and 9 in northern Ontario.

Become a Community Partner

Become a Community Partner

Beginning in northern Ontario, we are building partnerships with First Nations that face challenges recruiting, preparing, and retaining teachers. Our program has no cost to our community partners other than the ordinary salaries of the teachers they hire. Our community partners take part in every stage of our recruitment, selection, preparation, and support initiatives. If you are a First Nation education leader, please contact us.

Advisory Council

Advisory Council

Teach for Canada's core values--humility, culture, collaboration, and transparency--represent a desire for collaboration, co-creation, and partnership with communities. To this end, an Advisory Council composed of community members has been established to provide community-driven advisory capacity to the organization.

Teach For Canada is in the early stages of its lifespan and while the strategic priorities are set by its Board of Directors, the Advisory Council helps to ensure that the work of Teach For Canada is driven by communities. Furthermore, the Advisory Council and the space that is created for community-driven ideas allows for the co-creation of programs and activities at the earliest stages, as well as a forum to give feedback on Teach For Canada's teacher recruitment, preparation, and support programs.

 

In January 2017, the Advisory Council gathered in Thunder Bay for the third bi-annual meeting since its inception.

Topics discussed included:

*Goals for the Summer Enrichment Program

*Modifications to the recruitment and selection process to better meet community needs

*How Teach For Canada can support communities in helping teachers settle in
