Teach for Canada fills recruitment gap for cash-strapped First Nations schools


A shortage of teachers delayed the start of school for some students in Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, a First Nation community 600 kilometres north of Thunder Bay, Ont., last week.

It's a situation that Teach for Canada, a non-profit organization, was designed to rectify by recruiting, training and supporting teachers specifically to work in northern First Nations.

"We're pretty short staffed so we can't really do the things we want to do," said Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug education director Bill Sainnawap. "It's all tied into the shortage of money."
