This book contains the collective energies of several authors who were invited to write about leadership in Canadian education. Each author delivers a perspective that will trigger the reader to both question the text and thoughtfully examine the ideas put forward. While the topic at hand can be examined from many different vantage points, this text addresses Canadian education from a provincial and regional focus. The perspectives presented in this text are both timely and current, and the authors have made a concerted effort to include the voices of writers from across Canada who are themselves education leaders of considerable integrity and resourcefulness.
