WISE – Registration & Information

Workshops in Sustainability and Equality

MESJ is very excited to present our fourth annual WISE conference. WISE will occur on Friday, October 20th, 2017 during the province-wide MTS Professional Development day. All teachers, student teacher candidates, educational assistants, and any other educators are welcome to attend.

This year’s theme is Solidarity against Austerity.

Over the past year, many changes to the public sector have significant implications on our jobs as educators. The goal of WISE this year is to build solidarity with fellow educators but also to other members of the community who are negatively impacted by recent cuts and changes to funding structures.

Please find more information about the day below.
