Provincial Outreach & Regional Tour

Regional Tour Fall 2021

FISA and the Ministry of Education are pleased to present an opportunity for independent school leaders and Board members to attend a virtual version of the Regional Tour. The first two sessions occurred in late November and the third and final session will be held on December 14th.

The Regional Tour includes a presentation by the Ministry of Education on ministerial policies, pertinent statistics, and educational updates. The FISA presentation will focus on the advocacy issues and supports we are working on and providing for independent schools.

The last virtual session is scheduled for 90 minutes (if you are able, please set aside 120 minutes as the first two sessions went longer to accommodate some valuable Q & A).

Dec 14, 20216:00 – 7:30 p.m. (PST)

Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

The Regional Tour sessions are not recorded.


The Provincial Outreach Pro-D sessions are postponed until spring 2022.
