Teaching in Canada.
Canadian Teachers' Federation, Ottawa (Ontario).
This booklet is an attempt by the Canadian Teacher's Federation to answer many of the information requests it receives concerning a teaching career in Canada, teaching conditions, and teacher requirements. After preliminary sections about the history and nature of classroom teaching, the document presents information about occupations related to teaching and the steps for a high school student to take to become a teacher. Professional teachers' associations, salaries and fringe benefits, general social security, retirement plans, and appointment and tenure are also considered. Presented are general Canadian requirements concerning Canadian teachers who move from province to province, requirements for teachers from abroad, and methods for finding a teaching position in Canada. It is stated that at present the demand for teachers in Canada is rather light and is expected to continue to be so. Included as appendixes are lists of departments of education, teacher organizations, classification agencies, teacher education institutions, and placement assistance agencies, as well as some miscellaneous address.
