EdCan Status Update and a Note of Gratitude to Our Valued Members, Partners and Supporters

The EdCan Network’s Board of Directors is extremely grateful for the significant support we have received since our urgent message of imminent closure was distributed throughout our network last month. A heartfelt thank you to the professional stakeholder organizations, particularly the Canadian Association of School System Administrators (CASSA) for amplifying our request for support to their networks.

We would also like to acknowledge the expedited bridge funding confirmations from several Ministries of Education and foundations, as well as the school district early renewals of annual memberships, new member sign-ups, and individual donors that have all invested in EdCan to assist in overcoming our short-term operational challenges.

We also deeply appreciate the continued confidence our current Well at Work school district clients have in our commitment to delivering our workplace wellbeing programs and services without interruption in the fall. We are encouraged by the growing level of interest of potential school district clients across the country.

Based on the positive momentum generated to date by EdCan’s call to action, a decision on the future of EdCan has been deferred until early August after our next scheduled board meeting.

In the meantime, we would like to reiterate our call to action. Please consider supporting the EdCan Network (formerly known as the Canadian Education Association) through this challenging moment in its 132-year history with one or more of the following actions:
  1. Please join the EdCan Network as a School District, Not-For-Profit or Organizational Member.
  2. If you already have an EdCan School District, Not-For-Profit or Organizational Membership, could you please pay your 2023-2024 renewal fee now?
  3. If you hold a senior leadership position in a school district or have responsibilities for HR and/or wellness, please consider acquiring Well at Work Advisory and Professional Learning Services to support your staff during the 2023-2024 academic year.
  4. If you have additional ideas and introductions that could open doors to opportunities for EdCan and Well at Work partnerships, fund development and government relations activities, please contact EdCan CEO Max Cooke at mcooke@edcan.ca immediately for follow-up.
  5. Please distribute this message to your networks to garner additional EdCan School District, Not-For-Profit or Organizational Memberships.
