2023 Canadian Forum on Public Education

Agenda Agenda

2023 Canadian Forum on Public Education

The Canadian Forum on Public Education is a biennial event that unites public education supporters and activists from across CTF/FCE Member, Associate, and Partner Organizations; academia; government; and more.

The Forum is an opportunity to share, discuss, and expand understanding on critical matters in publicly funded public education in Canada. As an incubator of ideas, the conference melds a dynamic mix of speakers, workshops, discussion groups, and networking opportunities.

The theme this year, “The Answer Begins in the Classroom”, examines where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to go by exploring key education issues focused on three themes: School, Union and Society.

Join us and be part of the conversation in July!
