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.
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
