CEA is a network of Canadians – leaders from the education, research and policy, not for profit community, and business sectors.

CEA members share a deep commitment to the essential values of a high quality education for all young people, an appreciation for what education does so well, and sincere aspirations for what it can become.

CEA's members identify and share the learning and leadership practices that are making a difference - ideas that help all students to become the best that they can be. Our members contribute to CEA's key programs of work and accompanying research that:

  • Builds networks of schools, school districts, and researchers to define how more students can become deeply engaged in their learning.
  • Explores the reciprocal relationship of teaching and learning in creating deeply engaging learning environments.
  • Examines the critical links between school and community to identify ways to work together in support of students.
  • Leads a national conversation with Canadians to build understanding about and support for transformation in education systems.
