Welcome To EdTech & Labour Consulting Services

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality service possible.

Providing quality
EdTech Consulting includes individuals within our company and by association have served in various roles throughout the education and information technology community, several of whom were educators, business associates and government officials before they became consultants. We have credibility with the educational and technology community, who are more willing to accept our recommendations due to our sense of realism and pragmatism. A great advantage we offer to our clients is our understanding of educational, technology and labour related issues and how best business practices can be applied to those structures and operations.

Can we assist?

As the COVID-19 situation continues on into the summer months situations surrounding education and the labor market have been unstable with many decisions difficult to make in these uncertain times. EdTech Consulting specializes in both of these areas so if you need assistance as to moving forward or planning to make upcoming decisions surrounding learning situations and work conditions we can help. Give us a call and reach out to see if we can be of assistance. 

These current conditions are affecting all of us including the normal work at EdTech Consulting. The areas we normally support like K-12 and post secondary learning, labor force research, insight reports and planning along with facilitation and coordination of projects have all been put on hold or canceled. In lieu of these challenges we have now turned our focus to assisting our prospective clients through these challenging times and helping them plan and coordinate moving forward.....

The provincial school calendar will be followed with schools re-opening for teachers and staff on September 1 and students on September 8. The plan includes guidelines for all schools to keep students and staff safe, for example:

  • Students will work in cohorts, or groups of the same students, as much as possible. Cohorts will distance themselves from other groups to limit exposure to other students.
  • Classrooms will be configured to support physical distancing. Schools will work to reduce class sizes and when necessary, alternate space such as multi-purpose rooms will be used as classrooms.
  • Lunch and recess breaks will be staggered, as well as drop-off and pick-up times.
  • Protocols will be in place to safely move students through the school and reduce congestion in hallways and common areas.
  • Students and staff will be required to stay home when they are unwell and there will be screening protocols for all people entering a school.
  • Students will be educated on the importance of physical distancing and hand washing.
  • Enhanced cleaning protocols will be followed in the school and on the school bus.
  • In order to reduce the number of students on buses, school buses and routes will be added and parents will be asked to transport their children to and from school whenever possible.
