About

In remote First Nations communities, teachers are tough to recruit and even tougher to retain. And, too often, teachers arrive without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom. The twin challenges of teacher supply and attrition compound historical injustice and under-funding of education.

Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization motivated by a simple belief—that a child's education should not depend on their postal code. We recruit outstanding, community-minded teachers, provide three weeks of pre-service training, and give constant support to ensure that the teachers thrive in a remote First Nations school.
