2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Agenda

2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM)

Friends, as we near this year’s Annual General Meeting, we find ourselves amid a pivotal moment in publicly funded public education. With the wounds sustained by the pandemic still fresh for so many throughout the membership, renewed attacks on publicly funded public education have dominated the year, reminding us that our struggle continues. This is why the AGM is so important for us to convene, discuss, and deliberate as we pave the way forward, in solidarity.

This year is also the occasion for the CTF/FCE to turn a new leaf. In what will be my final official task, I have the privilege of handing the presidency to my dear friend and colleague Heidi Yetman. Joining her will also be newly elected Vice-Presidents, forming the Executive team for the next two years. Their leadership will carry the Federation forward as it navigates the realities facing public education in our country.

This AGM will also be busier than in recent years. Beginning the AGM week will see our first Canadian Forum on Public Education take place since 2018. Themed around “The Answer Begins in the Classroom,” the Forum is set to focus on the big topics facing education, labour, and greater society, connecting all three.

Bridging the Forum and AGM is Education International (EI)’s virtual 9th World Congress. This extraordinary World Congress, being held early over three mornings, will see delegates set the stage for next year’s in-person Congress in Buenos Aries.

This busy, albeit fulfilling week, provides an important opportunity to continue our work toward addressing the challenges facing teachers and publicly funded public education. As education leaders, we have the chance to set a new course, to strengthen our solidarity, and reset the narrative of public education in Canada.

On behalf of the CTF/FCE, the national voice for more than 365,000 teachers and support staff, I look forward to seeing you in Ottawa this July.
