Award Recipients

Each year the winners of Canada’s Outstanding Principals become members of a National Academy of Principals. Throughout the year, these outstanding principals will continue to act as champions of the program. They will also participate in ongoing discussions about leadership issues through an online forum and will be involved in mentoring colleagues in their home schools. They will actively collaborate in developing and communicating about issues important to publicly funded education with research support from The Learning Partnership.
