Depending on your chosen level of sponsorship, there are a number of advantages to sponsoring this event. 

Be a part of the conversation – sponsors may have a reserved seat at the Summit to share their ideas about improving public education. These conversations will move us forward to continued quality public education that is responsive to the changing needs of Canadian society. 

Impact and Reach – A paper summarizing the recommendations will be published following the event to continue the conversation with stakeholders and school systems across Canada. The paper is intended to become a conversation starter that will lead to positive changes. Gold and platinum level sponsors’ logos will be included in the report.  

Social Credibility – This is an opportunity to support social change through education. Your organization will position itself as a supportive member of the community and gain more credibility which can attract more interest and revenue for your business. 

Size – The largest leadership event of its kind for 2023, we are looking to attract between 400-1000 participants in attendance. It’s an opportunity to connect with hundreds of high-level educational leaders.  

National Networking – Opportunities to collaborate and share practices that will enhance outcomes for the future of education and for the well-being of students. An expanded reach and exposure to an audience, including educational leaders in Canada which you may not easily have access to. 

Brand Awareness and Competitive Advantage Exposure to potential new clientele that could provide a competitive advantage. Through your support, your brand will be recognized by both local and national communities that will increase your corporate visibility and exposure.
