  • On Monday, October 21, 2019, you are encouraged to exercise your democratic right to vote for the next Canadian government.

The “I Teach, I Vote” Link below, lists some of the current Federal Education Issues according to The Canadian Teachers’ federation: 

“With the election in full swing, teaching for a better world includes voting for one. The CTF/FCE’s “I Teach, I Vote” campaign is equally a focus on the priorities that can be addressed at the federal level, as well as a call to action. As teachers, we are among the select few in our communities that directly witness and experience the stark realities facing so many, which places us in the best position to give voice to those who are seldom heard.”
