Following the workshops we’re holding a special Youth Panel, moderated by Susan Lambert, Past President of the BCTF, where space will be reserved for you and your students. The Panel will include up to five young speakers who will each address the impact of racism on their lives.

    I registered for this conference on April 28th with my SJ12 class, but would also like to apply for the TTOC coverage option if it is still available.

      Hi Lara, Thanks for your comment. For BCTF teachers in districts where April 28 is not a ProD day you are able to request a TTOC by filling out your LOA requirement in the calendar on the first page of the registration form. Those requests are processed by the BCTF and the appropriate forms faxed to the appropriate district. In your situation I’ve emailed your request to our BCTF contact. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to email our conference committee at conference(at)pagebc.ca.
