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. To ensure a broad range of perspectives, membership includes classroom teachers, Indigenous educators, school administrators, Ministry of Education officials, curriculum consultants and academics.
