Purpose: The mission of the Canadian Centre for Genocide Education is to encourage teachers to teach the lessons of genocide - the importance of tolerance, of upholding human rights and democracy, and of helping others in need - and to help prepare them to effectively communicate those lessons in the classroom so that students will be challenged to think critically about the world that they live in and their role in it and be empowered to affect positive change as global citizens in the 21st Century. To that end, the Centre offers the Genocide Education Institute, a five-day institute that is held in Toronto each summer for teachers from across Canada, and full-day workshops with secondary school students.
