Partnership Summits

Our education-oriented summits, run through our Policy and Knowledge Mobilization department, are designed to bring together leaders, thinkers and doers from across sectors to seed ideas on how we can work together to address compelling issues on education to secure the future for young Canadians.

These one- or two-day events are collaborative and productive, examining issues, sharing best practices and brainstorming solutions. They also serve to share the different perspectives of each sector and improve understanding between stakeholders.

We believe that if business, government and education collaborate, we can come up with solutions to better prepare students for life after school.
