Message from our Executive Director

Dear CESBA members and friends,

As you know, we continue to work during an international health crisis that is moving into a second wave. The social, emotional, financial, physical and environmental effects of this crisis will be felt for years to come.
During this difficult time, staff, board and ministry representatives have been very impressed with our sector's ability to move quickly from face-to-face learning to virtual classrooms. A&CE staff are demonstrating their incredible resilience by using every tool possible to try to ensure the learning continues during this crisis – and including as many of our students as possible.
