What is this study about?

The purpose of our pan-Canadian research project is to explore the differential impact of teacher induction and mentorship programs on the early-career teachers’ retention across the provinces and territories.

You will be asked to provide your perspectives and insights about your early career experiences with teaching, induction and mentoring programs, professional learning opportunities, and career development.

The survey will take about 15 – 20 minutes to complete.

There are no known physical, psychological, economic, or social risks associated with this study. This study has been granted clearance by the General Research Ethics Board according to Canadian research ethics principles, as well as policies and procedures of Queen’s University and University of Saskatchewan.



Upon completion of the survey, you can enter your name into a draw for an iPad Mini 3.

The draw will take place on July 16, 2016 and the winners will be contacted by email.
