About Us

A leading research and action centre to influence
educational transformation in Canada.

EdCan NETWORK

Our mission is to ensure that ALL students thrive in our schools.

With over 125-years of experience as the leading independent national voice in Canadian K-12 education, the Canadian Education Association is proud to launch the EdCan Network to support the thousands of courageous educators working tirelessly to ensure that all students discover their place, purpose and path.

The EdCan Network is more than a new logo – it embodies a reinvigorated position of the CEA to amplify how teachers, principals, superintendents, researchers and other education leaders are boldly challenging the status quo.

This new website features Education Canada Magazine – a trusted source for providing informed research and opinion on the some of the biggest challenges facing educators today.

The quality of Canadian public education should be judged by more than standardized test scores. Competing political narratives about the role of public education often takes the focus away from what’s best for students. The EdCan Network includes voices from across the entire spectrum of K-12 education, producing meaningful professional learning events that help bring out the elephants in the room to build a positive forward-thinking narrative for the future of public education in Canada.

The EdCan Network believes that:

  • all learners’ needs should take precedence over ideology and politics so that they discover their passions and interests in deeply engaging learning environments, ones that inspire them to become confident and competent learners for life;
  • all educators should be trusted as designers of learning and further empowered to innovate and bridge the gap between policy decisions and actual learning;
  • a more flexible public education system is required to support the rapidly changing and diverse needs of all learners.

Competing political narratives about the role of public education often takes the focus away from what’s best for students. More than ever, what’s needed in the education landscape is the EdCan Network – beholden to no special interest and uniquely positioned to advance change for all the right reasons by focusing on the quality of learning and learner engagement in schools, and addressing the increasing number of students and teachers who are tuning out of school.

We welcome your membership support – and the addition of your voice – for this important movement for educational change.
