Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that recruits, prepares, and supports outstanding certified teachers. We have joined northern First Nations in the movement to make education more equal.
We work with First Nations education leaders, principals, teachers, and many others to recruit and select certified teachers who have the motivations, aptitude, and fit to be successful in a northern First Nation. Once selected, we provide three weeks of community-focused summer preparation and ongoing support during a teacher’s minimum two-year teaching commitment in the North.
To date, 180 teachers have gone through our program, and they have supported over 2000 students in northern First Nations. We currently partner with 20 First Nations and will be welcoming the next cohort of Teach For Canada teachers in the Fall.
Teach For Canada operates in a complex historical, cultural, and education context. The impact of colonialism and residential schools has been felt deeply by Indigenous communities in the north, and we are only successful due to our community-focused approach and adherence to the values that guide our work.
