Teach For Canada Teacher - Northern Ontario

Teach For Canada Teacher - Northern Ontario

Teach For Canada is recruiting teachers for full-time classroom positions in a¬ First Nation¬ in northern Ontario. Once selected, we provide teachers with 3 weeks of preparation and 2 years of professional support. Successful candidates will start teaching in September 2018.

Why we exist:

Education in Canada is a success story, but high overall quality masks deep inequality. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce an education gap between First Nations and non-First Nations communities.

The right kind of teacher can help fill this gap. We work with northern First Nations to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers who will increase student outcomes in the north.

Minimum Qualifications:

  • Certified or certification-eligible to teach in a Canadian province or territory

  • Legal working status in Canada for the minimum two-year teaching commitment

  • Available to attend the Summer Enrichment Program July 15 to August 3, 2018 (all-expenses covered by Teach For Canada)

  • Able to relocate and teach¬ full-time in¬ a rural First Nations community in northern Ontario

What we look for:

What does a successful northern educator look like? They overcome challenges with flexibility and¬ bring¬ community into their classroom.¬ Outside of school, they get involved in the community, lead extracurricular activities, and¬ explore the natural environment. But above all, they come humbly to learn¬ as much as they teach. Learn more about our selection criteria here.

As an organization that works with Indigenous communities, we value Indigenous perspectives in our program and encourage Indigenous candidates to apply.

2018 Selection timeline:

  • Deadline: April 8

  • Introductory interviews: April 15-18

  • Fit interviews: April 20-22; April 27-29

  • Reference checks: April 23 - May 3

  • Offers Extended: May 4

Selected teachers are matched with communities from May 16-July 13, 2018.
