Canada Forum 2024: Pathways to Postsecondary Success

Date: May 23 - 24, 2024
Location: University of Alberta

The College Board is delighted to partner with the University of Alberta to host the 3rd annual Canada Forum on May 23 & 24. The theme of the Forum is “Innovation, Inspiration and Impact” 

The Canada Forum is inviting 150 key decision-makers and thought-leaders from across Canada and around the world, representing Government, K-12, Post-Secondary, and Civil Society, for the purpose of identifying and growing more equitable and inclusive learning pathways to postsecondary. Half of each day will be spent in a facilitated dialogue with some of the world's leading experts and practitioners on learning pathways. The other half will be spent in working groups, identifying best practices, making connections, and scaling up for a wider audience.  The ultimate vision is to develop a national framework upon which future work can be inspired and built. 

With 100+ years of educational leadership in nearly every country, the College Board is honoured to work alongside Canadian educators to make the Forum a reality.
