Convention Purpose

Teachers’ conventions have been established through provincial legislation in the province to provide teachers a forum to renew their professional skills on an annual basis.

The Greater Edmonton Teachers’ Convention Association develops programs of general interest to teachers at all levels across a broad field of curriculum. Convention planning takes into account the needs of individual teachers to become aware of new knowledge and trends in teaching and school organization, and also their needs to establish and broaden communications with other teachers on matters of professional concern.

The general nature of the convention is emphasized; by choosing programs and frameworks with broad appeal; by retaining keynote speakers whose message will be of interest to a majority of teachers; and, by limiting the influence of external special interest groups.


Link to the schedules will become available once the program has been solidified.


If the session you are looking to register for is full, you will be put on a waitlist. At this point, you can still only register for a single session in each given time slot, until all pre-registrations are complete.
