MB launches strategy for French language teacher recruitment and retention


The Government of Manitoba has launched its French Language Recruitment and Retention Strategy to increase the supply of French language teachers in the province. The strategy has four focus areas: encouraging more high school students to choose a career in teaching French; enhancing the current university training provided to French teachers; prioritizing equitable recruitment, hiring, and certification practices; and developing orientation and support programs for all teachers. “The strategy to address the shortage of teachers supports French-language initiatives as an integral part of Manitoba’s education system, and will help ensure these opportunities will continue to be available in our educational communities,” said MB Education and Early Childhood Learning Minister Wayne Ewasko.
