As a prelude to the upcoming Canada Summit to be held at the University of British Columbia in April 2021, College Board is hosting a series of national webinars in Canada. These events will bring together key leaders from postsecondary, public, and private secondary schools/systems to discuss how K–12 and higher education can work together to help students select an academic pathway that will provide them with the skills to thrive academically, professionally, and personally.
