North Canoe Mission Statement

The purpose of North Canoe School is to enable all learners to to develop their individual potential and acquire the   knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a healthy and caring  society.

Parent information regarding job action.
As you may have heard, the British Columbia Teachers' Federation has announced that its members will be withdrawing services by taking part in a one day study session on Monday, June 16 followed by a full scale strike starting on Tuesday, June 17.
Although the district is hopeful and cautiously optimistic that an agreement may be reached over the weekend, there is the potential that Friday, June 13 may be the final day of instruction for students this school year.
 A ruling from the Labour Relations Board has ensured all Grade 10 - 12 provincial exams will go ahead as scheduled and will be marked. There will be a "picket free" entrance for students so they will not have to cross a picket line on the way into their school to write exams. Please ensure your Grade 10-12 students recognize the importance of completing these exams as they will be part of their student record.
Also deemed essential were the compilation of marks for all Grade 12 students, all psychometric or other testing scheduled for the purpose of determining whether a student should receive a special needs designation, and all required information on students in the Ministry of Education's Category H (severe behaviour/serious mental illness).
 All district graduation ceremonies in our district will also be going ahead as planned with the support from school and district management staff.
 Because of the uncertainty, we feel it would be a good idea for your child to bring home all personal belongings after school on Friday.
As this situation is changing daily we will do our best to keep you informed of any developments through a letter home, the school district's facebook page, the school district website (www.sd83.bc.ca), the media, and our automated phone system.
This is not the way we had hoped the school year would be ending. We regret the issues this ongoing provincial dispute may be causing your family and it is the sincere hope of the Board of Education that this dispute will soon be over.
Please help us spread the message to other parents. Thank you!
