Teacher Resources

The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives annually publishes a calendar, An Agenda for Social Change. Each month identifies and describes key dates in Canada’s social justice history. Each day, readers have an opportunity to explore how debates about equality, gender, environment, First Nations, labour, trade, and social programs shape our development and identity. The calendar includes a teacher’s guide for those interested in using the calendar as an educational tool.
