Benefits

Check out all the great benefits we offer at Teach For Canada

Accommodation You would live in dedicated housing provided by the community for teachers. The accommodation is called a teacherage, and it can vary from a single housing unit for each teacher to shared teacher accommodation within the same building. Single teachers or teaching couples will have their own bedroom and will often share living space. Teachers with families will work with the communities to find a teacherage with space to accommodate their needs. Rent varies by community, but it is typically below $600 per month per teacher.

On-going training Selected Teach For Canada teachers join us in the summer before they begin teaching for an intensive, community-focused Summer Enrichment Program, co-designed and led by education experts, experienced teachers, school and community leaders, and Elders. Among other topics, Teach For Canada teachers are immersed in the histories and cultures of the communities in which they will teach, meet two members from the community in which they will teach, visit a First Nations community, learn teaching strategies tailored for northern First Nations students, and discuss and reflect on wellness and self-care techniques.

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.
