The centers and research chairs involved in the program

Our first partners are the centers and university research chairs that we manage or take part in, as well as their many members. Thanks to these partners, our team sits at the center of the largest network of Canadian researchers involved in studying school personnel.

Centre de recherche interuniversitaire sur la formation et la profession enseignante

Centre de recherches en éducation franco-ontarienne

International Center for Educational Change

Institute for Studies in Teacher Education

Center for Policy Studies in Higher Education and Training

Chaire de recherche du Canada en étude de la formation à l'enseignement

Chaire de recherche du Canada en intervention éducative

Chaire de recherche du Canada sur les métiers de l'éducation

Chaire de recherche du Canada sur les technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) en éducation


The contribution of Statistics Canada to this program is massive and direct. In terms of expertise as well as resources and dissemination, this partnership with Statistics Canada will greatly facilitate the realization of the team’s projects, our progress and our ability to tap into provincial organizations and departments in charge managing data on school personnel. The partnership will also contribute to student training and to the publication of our studies, particularly in the Statistics Canada newsletter. Finally, the support of Statistics Canada will carries international weight, particularly in the exchange of information with the OECD and other countries in terms of data on school personnel.

The Council of Ministers of Education, Canada has been a partner since 1998 in the context of the Pan-Canadian Education Research Agenda (PCERA). We should underscore that this present reach resulted from a recommendation our team made to the Council in 1998. The Council of Ministers of Education Canada will help disseminate the results of our research to the different education ministries, notably in the PCERA colloquia in which we will be participating. At the same time, the Council will help us collaborate with the statistic and documentary centers and services of the different Canadian provincial ministers in order for us to collect documentary data and administrative statistics.

La Direction de la recherche, des statistiques et des indicateurs en éducation du ministère de l'Éducation du Québec is already a partner of the CRIFPE.

The Canadian Federation of Teachers (CFT) and The Canadian Association of Principals (CAP) are the two main Canadian organizations representing the groups of educators that we will study  in this program. The contribution of the CFT and of the CAP is multi-faceted: exchange of data, access to research fields, support in the distribution of surveys to participants involved in the study, dissemination of results among their members; publication of our work in their media, etc. Thanks to  CFT and CAP, we can reach Canadian teachers and school administrators, too rarely targeted by research in education.

L'Association canadienne d'éducation de langue française (ACELF) allows us to publicize our program throughout the entire community of Canadian, French-speaking academics working in the educational field, specifically through their respective conferences and publications.

Each organization has delegated a member to participate on the Advisory Board.
