Our Approach

Education in Canada is a success story. Study after study shows that our public schools are among the best in the world. But high overall quality masks deep inequality. Only 48 percent of First Nations youth living on reserve have a high school diploma. In the North, those numbers are even lower. And, too often, teachers arrive in northern First Nations without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce a statistical education gap between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.

Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that works with northern First Nations to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers who will increase student outcomes in the North. This model has been defined by First Nations community partners, our Circle of Advisors, our Board of Directors, and experienced northern educators.

Our Culture

Teach For Canada has a supportive work culture and offers a variety of benefits to its team
members including flexible hours. In addition to these perks and benefits, Teach For
Canada also honours National Indigenous Peoples Day and the National Day of Truth and
Reconciliation as statutory holidays; and the last week of every calendar year is paid time
off too!

On our team we are fortunate to have a committed, experienced, talented, and humble
group of leaders. Together, this team works hard to create meaningful impact. If you’re
looking for a fast-paced, innovative, energizing, and rewarding work environment, then we
want to hear from you!
