ETFO Kindergarten Part 1 & Part 2 Courses being offered by TVDSB
This winter the ETFO Kindergarten Part 1 & Part 2 - Additional Qualification Courses in Thames Valley are being offered. These are ETFO’s “Onsite” AQ courses which means that they are a blended model of face to face learning time with an instructor and also online learning time which is done independently by the course participant.
Rose Walton will be teaching these courses.

This is an appeal for action.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is following through with his election commitment to have a House of Commons debate on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), but it would appear that the new federal government is planning to sign on regardless.

Please visit the ETFO website to access a Council of Canadians' overview of concerns about the TPPA and an online letter to Prime Minister Trudeau calling for public hearings:
