ABOUT US

The Learning Partnership is a registered Canadian charity that brings together business, educators and strategic partners to design and deliver innovation education programs focused on early learners in schools across Canada.


Our mission is to build the essential skills and competencies needed in tomorrow’s leaders, innovators and problem solvers. Our programs enhance provincial curricula, are aligned with Canada’s innovation agenda, and are made available to students, parents and educators through the generous support of our education sector partners and funding from corporate, government, foundation and private donors.


The Learning Partnership is an organization dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusive education for all students, regardless of their circumstances.


We stand against all forms of discrimination. 


We acknowledge our responsibility as settlers on these traditional territories.
