2023 Desjardins Tech Donation Program

Desjardins is back this year with their tech donation program in collaboration with the EdCan Network for K-12 public schools across Canada. This program is responding to the immediate student needs because of post-pandemic and economic factors that are challenging equity of access to technological learning tools for far too many students.

Desjardins is once again donating a total of $100,000 ($5,000 to 20 schools across Canada) for students in need of computers and other technological learning tools.

Discontinuation of the EdCan Network’s Research Awards Program

The EdCan Network would like to inform its members, its wider network of education stakeholder organizations and K-12 educators that its research awards program, which includes the Whitworth Award and Pat Clifford Awards, will be discontinued effective this year due to budgetary and staff capacity constraints.

EdCan is extremely grateful to all of the Awards Committee Members who generously provided their time and expertise in selecting award winners for many years. EdCan also conveys our sincere appreciation to all of our past award winners who joined our network to share their groundbreaking research and steadfast commitment to breaking new ground or revisiting commonly held assumptions in education policy, practice or theory in Canada.
