National Virtual Press Conference on Canadian Teacher Mental Health
OTTAWA, ON, Nov. 26, 2020 /CNW/ – The Canadian Teachers’ Federation (CTF/FCE) is holding a virtual press conference on Thursday, November 26 at 1:00 pm EST to release the findings of a national pandemic survey on the increasing issue of teacher mental health and well-being.
The CTF/FCE mental health check-in survey was conducted in English and French from October 16-25, 2020. Distributed through provincial and territorial Member Organizations, the survey received close to 14,000 responses. Teachers currently teaching completed the survey. This survey followed the CTF/FCE’s pandemic research study completed in June 2020, which received over 15,000 responses over a two-week period.
- 46% of teachers are very stressed, struggling to cope, and increasingly feeling unhappy.
- Upholding basic levels of daily physical health has become increasingly difficult for teachers.
- There is a need for multiple layers of support – at the school, from the board, and from the Ministry, to listen to, recognize, and respond to the very real issues teachers, education workers, and their students are facing in this time of pandemic with meaningful changes to mitigate the effects of increased work-load and worries about the health and safety of their students, colleagues, and themselves.
The survey included 10 closed-ended questions on mental health and well-being, and included baseline questions on teachers’ current mental state and stress levels, Likert scales on emotional and physical well-being, and comparative longitudinal questions.
To join the press conference:
Journalists are invited to contact Lynne Parisien before 11:00 am on November 26 to register. Upon confirmation of interest, journalists will receive login and password information to attend the event via Zoom, the complete survey report and province and territorial notable findings.
The Canadian Teachers’ Federation
Founded in 1920, the Canadian Teachers’ Federation is the national voice for the teaching profession. As the national alliance of provincial and territorial teacher organizations, the CTF/FCE represents 18 Member Organizations and over 300,000 elementary and secondary school teachers across Canada.

I f you’re interested in saving a little money on your taxes, the Digital News Tax Credit could go along way. That is, assuming you’re eligible for it. To get the digital news tax credit, you need to have paid money for subscription media in 2020. That includes online newspaper subscriptions and other paid media services. The media outlet you subscribed to also has to be approved. The main criteria is that the news outlet be Canadian. If it’s any mainstream Canadian newspaper, it’s likely approved. The catch is you will get back $75 on the cap of $500 spent on subscriptions. – The Motley Fool
The media may take credit for the Biden victory, as it conducted the campaign; almost no one voted for Biden, an undistinguished and bumbling wheel-horse who was on his way to the political glue factory until he was rescued by the Democratic party elders to prevent a victory by Marxist Sen. Bernie Sanders. The media’s credit for that is mitigated by the terrible failure of the phony polls and predictions of a great repudiation of Trump, and the further erosion of public trust in the media to levels that are far below those enjoyed by the president it laboured so relentlessly to destroy. – Conrad Black, National Post (FYI addendum: Trump pardoned Black, the former media mogul who was jailed for fraud and obstruction of justice in the US, shortly after he wrote a book praising the US president.)
California’s Silicon Valley shapes our lives. From the websites where we do our household shopping to the video-streaming services we watch to the companies which provide our email, almost all are based in this corner of the United States.
Until recently, that is. The rise of TikTok, an app whose parent company is the Chinese firm ByteDance, has struck at the heart of Silicon Valley’s supremacy. Along with other digital products coming out of China, TikTok has the potential to reshape the future of technology – a future in which the culture and the interests of Shanghai or Beijing could mould the industry more than that of San Francisco Bay. – Chris Stokel-Walker, BBC
When the internet got involved in music, everything changed. Sales tanked and cheques shrank. That retirement fund was no longer assured. This goes a long way to explaining why so many heritage acts from the 1960s, ’70s, and ’80s — think Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, and Guns N’ Roses — went back on the road. They had to make up for that lost revenue somehow. David Bowie was the first to find an equitable solution with his so-called “Bowie Bonds”. – Alan Cross, Global News

German media giant Bertelsmann said Wednesday that its Penguin Random House division is buying rival Simon & Schuster, in a megadeal that would reshape the U.S. publishing industry.
