Why we exist

Education in Canada is a success story, but high overall quality masks deep inequality. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce an education gap between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.

Teach for Canada is a non-profit organization that works with northern communities to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers who will improve student outcomes in the North.

Work environment

Each school and community is different. Resources that tend to be available in each school include:

  • TA in the classroom with the teacher
  • SmartBoards, laptops, and tablets in the classroom
  • Office with a secretary and staff room
  • Special Education Teacher (school-wide) for high needs students

Community involvement

What does a successful northern educator look like? They overcome challenges with flexibility and bring community into their classroom. Outside of school, they get involved in the community, lead extracurricular activities, and explore the natural environment. But above all, they come humbly to learn as much as they teach.
