An Event in Ottawa

Teresa Pierre from the Parents as First Educators (PAFE) in Toronto will be giving talks in Ottawa the weekend of March 3-4. 

The title of the talks is "Equity and Inclusion in Catholic Schools:  Maintaining Our Catholic Identity." 

Her talk is particularly relevant now, in light of Bill 13 (the Accepting Schools Act) which mandates Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) clubs, and the problems the governments broader Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy poses for Catholic schools.

Saturday March 3
3:30 - 5:00 PM
Our Lady of the Visitation
5338 Bank Street South

Saturday March 3
7:30 - 9:00 PM

Sunday March 4
