Our vision is a Canada where creative thinking and opportunity are made possible for every student. We seek to inspire and equip students to solve real-world challenges and prepare them for an ever-changing future.
The Learning Partnership (TLP) is a national not-for-profit that leverages the full potential of students through innovation education, business partnerships and strategic alliances. We design and deliver programs that encourage problem identification, experimentation, collaboration, critical thinking, and hands-on engagement to complement public education in Canada aligned with provincial curricula and global competencies.
TLP programs integrate the 6 Global Competencies as well as the 5 Social-Emotional Learning Principles to inspire deeper learning, build resilience, create a positive sense of self and equip students to solve real-world challenges.
What People Are Saying
"“I learned that we have to present our ideas to people so that they can help us. We can’t just ask grownups for money, we have to persuade them with good ideas so that they want to help us out. We also can’t give up easily. We have to keep going and keep trying even when it is hard.”"
