Advisory Circle of Educators
The Advisory Circle of Educators (ACOE) is a committee that advises Elections Canada on matters related to education at the primary and secondary levels. Elections Canada consults the ACOE on best practices in the development of educational resources, future directions for its civic education program, and ways to encourage uptake by teachers.
The ACOE was created in November 2017. Membership includes educators from each province and territory and First Nations schools. To ensure a broad range of perspectives, membership includes classroom teachers, school administrators, Ministry of Education officials, curriculum consultants and academics.
