OTTAWA – The Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) starts this evening its Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Ottawa with over 100 teacher leaders representing CTF Member organizations to discuss education issues of current importance, including the impact of privatization and commercialization in and of public education. Delegates will also map out the organization’s budget and priority work for the coming year. This is the last AGM for CTF President Heather Smith whose two-year non-renewable term comes to an end. H. Mark Ramsankar, Past President of The Alberta Teachers’ Association, elected in 2016 as president-designate, will assume the Federation’s presidency.
