National Nomination and Selection Process
Through the Program Advisory Committee organized by the Learning Partnership, a set of selection criteria has been defined that will guide the nominations for selection. School Boards, provincial and territorial associations across Canada are alerted to the beginning of the Nomination Process for the current year. The local provincial or territorial principals' association accepts nominations, reviews each submission and passes them on to The Learning Partnership for submission to the National Selection Committee made up of educational, community and business leaders from across the country. The National Selection Committee determines 30 Canada’s Outstanding Principals Winners. Nominees will have shown career potential and willingness to have an even more important impact on publicly funded education in the future. This final selection will guarantee representation from all provinces and territories on a rep-by-pop basis. Click here for Nomination Process and documentation.
