“Teachers are people filled with compassion, curiosity, who are constantly looking for new ways to meet challenges and explain complex issues. They understand that listening to their students is more important than having all the answers, and they work tirelessly to ensure that students have the tools they need to find the answers and take action. hand their own future. Above all, teachers help students exit the classroom by showing respect for themselves and others. They know their students will help shape the world, and they have a remarkable impact on that world, every day, in the classroom.

“The theme of this year, Teach in freedom, empower teachers, highlights the important role teachers play in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. When teachers have the freedom and support to help students reach their full potential, entire societies enjoy greater prosperity and a stronger democracy.

“Canada is working to advance theSustainable Development Goal 4, which aims to ensure quality and inclusive education for all, and to promote lifelong learning opportunities. In Budget 2017, we increased access to funding to help adults return to school more easily. We have also made investments in child care services, particularly in the training and support of early childhood educators. Last year, we also created a tax credit for teachers and early childhood educators, which is important support in helping their students succeed. Thanks to our feminist international aid policy, we help women and girls around the world gain equal educational opportunities. We are also investing in Canadian schools and in aboriginal education across the country.

“I am very proud to have been a teacher, and I have immense respect for the work teachers do every day. This is why I am very happy to open the nomination period for Premier's Awards for Teaching Excellence and for Excellence in Early Childhood Education of this year. These awards recognize the work of exemplary teachers, who prepare the next generation to succeed in our changing economy. This year, we are adding 17 awards aimed at honoring inspiring teachers in science, technology, engineering and math. These teachers encourage innovation that allows the Canada to move forward, tomorrow like today. I invite all Canadians to pay tribute to the teachers who make a real difference and to nominate them for the awards.
