About

To thrive in our diverse, connected and changing world, students must learn to be critical thinkers and collaborative problem solvers, communicating across cultures to tackle global issues with creativity and resiliency. Cultivating these competencies will prepare students to quickly adapt to changing trends, allowing them to excel in life and work. Development of these skills will help to nurture a highly skilled and innovative workforce that will be a pillar of a strong and resilient Canadian economy.
 
We believe that Canada can, and must, do better to become a leader in innovation. At The Learning Partnership, we begin with young people. Through dynamic collaboration across business, education and government sectors, we lift our collective heads, look at innovation pressures and employ a systematic approach to empower children to tackle challenges strategically so that they grow to compete successfully in this globally connected world.
 
Our experiential programs encourage students to see their education beyond the classroom, as an opportunity to engage in real-world situations and to find innovative solutions in their lives.  Through our programs, learning is accelerated and students gain a deeper understanding of subject matter, encouraging them to build upon the status quo.
 
Our student programs encourage learning that is personal, creating opportunities to make lessons accessible to everyone and allowing students to explore through imagination.
      

The Learning Partnership is a registered Canadian charity that brings together business, educators and strategic partners to design and deliver innovation education programs focused on early learners in schools across Canada.

Our programs build the essential skills and competencies needed in tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and problem solvers. They enhance provincial curricula, are aligned with Canada’s innovation agenda, and are made available to students, parents and educators through the generous support of our education sector partners and funding from corporate, government, foundation and private donors.
