Overall, Canadian education is a success story. But high overall quality masks deep
inequality. On First Nations reserves, 3 in 5 students do not complete high school. Small
communities often face challenges recruiting and retaining teachers. And, too often, new
teachers arrive in northern First Nations without the preparation and support they need to
succeed—and stay—in the classroom.
Teach For Canada has joined northern First Nations in the movement to make education
more equitable. We are a non‐profit organization that recruits, prepares, and supports
outstanding certified teachers.
We dream big. Teach For Canada believes that committed, passionate teachers with strong
leadership characteristics can ignite positive change. Our small, tightly‐knit team works
long but inspired and flexible hours. Our workplace culture is entrepreneurial and
collaborative. We value lived experience and new ideas.
If you prefer working alone, dislike ambiguity, and adhere to a very predictable schedule,
then Teach For Canada probably isn’t right for you. But if you’re looking for a fun, fast‐
paced, innovative, energizing, and rewarding work environment that will foster ongoing
learning and growth, then we want to hear from you.
