©UNESCO Days of Awareness
The United Nations designated 5 June as World Environment Day to highlight that the protection and health of the environment is a major issue, which affects the well-being of peoples and economic development throughout the world. The celebration of this day provides us with an opportunity to broaden the basis for an enlightened opinion and responsible conduct by individuals, enterprises and communities in preserving and enhancing the environment.
We celebrate World Oceans Day to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life. They are the lungs of our planet, providing most of the oxygen we breathe. The purpose of the Day is to inform the public of the impact of human actions on the ocean, develop a worldwide movement of citizens for the ocean, and mobilize and unite the world’s population on a project for the sustainable management of the world's oceans. They are a major source of food and medicines and a critical part of the biosphere. In the end, it is a day to celebrate together the beauty, the wealth and the promise of the ocean.

Summer Bridge Program (2021)
The Summer Bridge Program (SBP) Team is looking for dynamic leaders (with a Child Studies/Education background or interested in Education) to be a part of our team. We are a group of exceptional volunteers (SBP leaders) who are dedicated to helping vulnerable students maintain their reading during the summer. SBP leaders will receive training sessions on current reading strategies used in the primary school classroom. As reading sessions are given virtually, SBP leaders offer their available hours during the summer. This is a great opportunity to broaden your teaching repertoires and to be a part of an amazing team of SBP leaders!

The Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund
Inspired by Chanie’s story and Gord’s call to build a better Canada, the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund aims to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
Our goal is to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians.
Through its actions, Fondation Monique-Fitz-Back wishes to reach as many young people and educators as possible throughout the province of Quebec. With this in mind, we try to make our services and pedagogical tools as accessible as possible. However, much of our content is still only available in French. We are doing our best to change this situation and offer more bilingual content.
The following educational tools are available in English:

Frequently asked questions
The committee has ties with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, Plant Grow Love, The Humanitarian Coalition, the Namuwongo Project, OSU Children’s Library Fund, Geoscope, among others.
A: Each situation is analyzed by a CNEEST agent and is based on the medical notes provided by the doctor. In fact, it is the doctor who begins the process with the CNESST by filling out the medical report indicating the diagnosis and the link to employment.
This is why is it important to make an appointment with the doctor on the day the accident at work occurs and to fill out the register of accidents available in your school or centre.
A: Recognition of an occupational injury by the CNESST allows you to:
- retain your full salary with access to medical rehabilitation services until your condition has stabilized;
- have recognized any permanent disabilities and functional restrictions relating to your job;
- retain days in your sick-leave bank;
- facilitate recognition of a recurrence, relapse or aggravation of the initial injury in the future.
