The search for dynamic resources and initiatives continues to be a need for teachers to support and enhance their implementation of the Ontario Geography and environmental education curriculum.

The conference will be held at the Ottawa Marriott. This event attracts approximately 250 delegates from across the province, including teachers, department leaders, and curriculum coordinators.

The search for dynamic resources and initiatives continues to be a need for teachers to support and enhance their implementation of the Ontario Geography and environmental education curriculum.
