Professional Learning

Two teachers talking in a library

Are you looking for some support in using our resources or teaching about elections and democracy? We can help.

This year, Elections Canada is running pilot projects in both Manitoba and the Greater Toronto Area where we have senior education specialists who can come to you! We can present at your professional learning event, at a staff or department meeting, or even do a demonstration lesson in your classroom with your students. All of our resources are designed to support inquiry learning by engaging students in asking questions about elections and democracy. 

And you too, as a teacher, have questions about these topics. That's why we are here to guide and support you.

To contact the professional learning specialist near you, please contact us: education@elections.ca
