NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA, March 21, 2024 // – The International Baccalaureate (IB) is set to hold its inaugural IB Days event in Fredericton, New Brunswick on March 26-27, in partnership with the University of New Brunswick and the Atlantic Canada Association of IB World Schools. This event will bring together educational leaders, teachers, government representatives, and the local community in Canada.

The IB Days in Atlantic Canada provide a platform to engage with stories centered on IB programmes shared by educators from nearby IB World Schools. Through interactive workshops and presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from IB students, alumni, educators, and parents about the advantages of an IB education. Distinguished government officials such as Mr. Dennis Cochrane, former deputy minister of education for New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, as well as former mayor of Moncton, along with Mary McDonald, IB/AP Lead at Nova Scotia Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, will be participating in the IB Days event.

A panel comprising representatives from regional Canadian universities including Dalhousie, St. Mary’s, Mt. Allison, UNB, and St. Thomas will convene to discuss the reasons why universities are eager to admit IB students.

The IB Days Atlantic Canada symposium will underscore Canada’s emphasis on multilingualism by facilitating discussions on incorporating various languages such as French, Gaelic, Indigenous, and mother tongue languages into the IB programmes. The primary goal of the event is to introduce the IB to local education stakeholders and community members in Canada’s Atlantic region.

Members of the media are invited to attend the events and engage in discussions with IB leaders. They will be available for interviews to elaborate on the IB’s presence in New Brunswick and across Atlantic Canada.
