Every day, Canada’s world-class educators provide the students in their care with the building blocks-the skills, tools and experiences-they need to become thriving adults in Canada’s innovation economy.
Today, the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced Canada’s 72 top educators receiving this year’s Prime Minister Awards for Teaching Excellence and Teaching Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and for Excellence in Early Childhood Education at the regional and national levels. These awards celebrate the people who are contributing to Canada’s culture of curiosity by inspiring young people to reflect, to question and to challenge.
The 17 top-ranked recipients will be presented with a national certificate of excellence during the National Award Ceremony taking place at the Château Laurier in Ottawa on October 3. The celebration precedes the opening of the nomination period for the 2023 awards.
