We look forward to welcoming our forum attendees in a few days!
The aim of the first pan-Canadian Teacher Induction and Mentoring Forum is to initiate the pan-Canadian conversations among the interested parties who work with early career teachers from all provinces and territories in Canada. It is open for scholars, administrators, teacher induction and mentoring program coordinators, representatives from teacher associations, ministries/departments of education, universities, school boards, schools, and community organizations across Canada.

Fostering Vitality in Schools: Nurturing Compassion, Building Trust, and Celebrating Strengths
Vibrant schools are joyful places where curiosity and love of learning abide. Cultivating compassion through a clear and specific model of empathy and adopting a strengths-based orientation for both faculty and students are two powerful strategies for bringing about these vibrant learning environments. In addition, a growing body of research demonstrates the essential role that trust plays in creating positive learning outcomes for students. Let us explore together how we might foster more vitality in our own professional learning contexts.
