To invest in People for Education is to invest in Canada's future

The best way to ensure a strong future for Canada is to invest in our young people and their potential. Public education—when it is functioning at its best—is the proven path to success. People for Education provides the evidence and the advocacy to ensure that public education works.

We’re making a difference

“Here’s a quick note to thank People for Education for helping to spread the word about the Canada Learning Bond and through your January newsletter and online community. We had close to a hundred visits to the website directly from these sources…. Having social networks like yours help spread the word not only reaches eligible families we could never reach on our own, but ensures families learn about it from people they trust. You  wrote about it in your newsletter and suddenly, low-income parents in the Southeast Kootenay district of BC learned from their own Parent Advisory Council that there is free money they can access to start saving for their kids’ higher education. Awesome!”

“I am always impressed at the total commitment [People for Education has] to education in Ontario, and I am glad that you are there doing what you are doing to ensure the public is aware of what is going on.

Keep up the good work, we need P4E. Thanks from a total fan.”

We facilitate dialogue, engage the public and media, partner with organizations inside and outside education, frame new possibilities and new strategies, and make recommendations to government.
