Project Overseas

Posted October 10, 2018

Project Overseas is a joint endeavor by the Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF) and its member organizations (provincial and territorial teacher organizations) to give professional assistance to fellow teachers in developing countries. The project takes place during the months of July and August. Started in 1962 with one program in Nigeria, Project Overseas has assisted teacher organizations in more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, and the South Pacific. Since its inception, a total of 1,853 Canadian teachers have participated in the program. The ripple effect of their participation has touched approximately 92,500 teachers and 2.6 million students around the world! Currently, approximately 50 volunteers are sent each summer to about a dozen countries.
