Teachers have an opportunity to learn more about the democratic system.

The next Teachers Institute is on March 19th in Ottawa.

Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus says this would be a great learning experience for teachers of civics classes especially. He says this program helps teachers understand the inner working of Parliament while networking with teachers across Canada.

Each year about 70 teachers collect for this program

Teachers can get more information at www.parl.gc.ca/teachers. The deadline to apply is April 15th.
