CESBA is an outstanding professional learning community that shares resources openly…creates amazing networking opportunities…and is the advocacy group for our Adult and Continuing Education needs as they relate to the four, main learning ministries whom we deal with (Ministry of Education, Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration, Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada).

We live in interesting times when old problems need new solutions to ensure success in the world. Continuing education available to all citizens has never been more necessary. In Ontario a strong dynamic organization – CESBA – brings the needs and the resources across the province to the fore, for educators, leaders and politicians. Membership in CESBA is invaluable. Belong, participate, benefit and strengthen the vision of quality education for all.

A membership in CESBA is invaluable! When I was Principal of Loyola, School of Adult and Continuing Education, CESBA was THE main source of professional development in all aspects of adult education for both me and my staff. The current and future looking information provided enabled us to stay current and improve our services to our learners. Being a member of CESBA was like having a direct line to the various ministries. Through CESBA, the collective voice of adult educators in school boards is strong and listened to at the ministry level. The annual conference and the regional meetings are not to be missed as they are an important opportunity for networking and learning about innovative and effective practices. I highly recommend that all A&CE boards join CESBA! It is the best investment you can make for your learners.
