The OPC recognizes the value of evidence-based, job-embedded learning, sharing promising practices and a distributed leadership model. Our professional learning team is committed to developing and delivering leading edge, responsive learning for individuals who seek actionable and practical strategies to advance school and system leadership world-wide. It is a priority for us to develop, provide and support a variety of relevant, accessible and locally customized professional learning opportunities, based on diverse Member needs, feedback and job demands.

We continuously seek input from a multitude of sources to inform our processes from needs identification, to design, to development and delivery of diverse resources that support the needs of our Members and colleagues. This support to educational leaders can take many formats and can be customized to various learning needs, both at the board level and individually. 

Your board may make professional development funds available to VPs and Ps; however, the rules regarding how those funds may be used must be followed.

As a not-for-profit organization, neither our provincial nor local districts can rebate/give money directly to a Member. Otherwise you would not be able to report your membership fees as tax deductible.
