The Canadian Council for Geographic Education (CCGE) welcomed Chantal Déry, a Universitié du Québec en Outaouais professor, as the newly elected representative from Quebec at the strategic planning session and annual general meeting in Ottawa this past November. The CCGE also congratulated Jane Kerr-Wilson, a high school teacher, on her re-election in Ontario. Dedicated to improving the geographic literacy of Canadian students, the CCGE strives to further its influence and support in strengthening geography education in Canada and continues to create engaging educator resources on topics such as the War of 1812 and the Calgary Stampede.
