CONNECT is Canada’s largest educational technology conference. We have attracted over 2000 participants, plus countless Exhibitors and Sponsors that came together under one roof to share best practices and expand our horizons of education technology in an ever increasing global and digital economy.

This community of passionate educators, leaders, chief information officers, directors of education, IT experts, business managers and government sector institutions are committed to gathering once a year to learn, debate and exchange ideas, network and be inspired through a smorgasbord of world class speakers, presenters, exhibits and seminars. It is the only event in Canada that brings together the complete life-cycle of learning, from kindergarten to Higher Education, libraries and workplace learning.

Our mission is to connect all sectors in order to help raise the standards of 21st century teaching, training and learning in education.

CONNECT offers a wide variety of presentations and workshops from integrating technology with arts and music, Math or animation and 3D printing, to Virtual Learning Environment and Professional Learning Communities.
