Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that works with northern First Nations communities to recruit, prepare, and support outstanding committed teachers.
Northern First Nations are looking for committed JK-10 educators who can meet curriculum expectations through culturally-relevant pedagogy, outdoor education, and modern technology. Our teachers come from different backgrounds and experiences, but all are self-reflective, flexible, and community-focused. While working in a remote setting can be challenging, the right type of teacher can thrive while making a positive difference.
Once selected, Teach For Canada provides 3-weeks of hands-on preparation, ongoing professional development, and wrap-around support for all educators in our program. This support is given to all teachers over the course of their minimum two-year commitment to the community.
