Take Our Kids to Work Day, taking place on November 6, 2019, is an opportunity for Grade 9 students across Canada to explore career options that may inform their education choices. Students have an opportunity to spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative or friend, allowing practical real-life experiences to bridge with learning in the classroom. Workplaces can register online here to receive resources and supports to planning a great day for students and employees!
