Statement from the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour on World Teachers’ Day

October 5, 2023

Today, on World Teachers’ Day, we honour and appreciate teachers’ invaluable role in shaping our children’s futures. They are the guiding lights that give our kids the foundation they need to succeed and create a better future for themselves.

Throughout the year, we are reminded of the pressing need to address the daily challenges and gaps teachers face under the theme “The Teachers We Need for the Education We Want: We must reverse the teacher shortage.” Instilling a passion for knowledge in students results in teachers who go above and beyond delivering lessons and serving as counsellors, coaches, mentors, and advocates.

We collectively support our teachers and ensure they have the necessary resources to thrive. By investing in their professional development, improving working conditions, and recognizing their vital contributions, we empower them to continue shaping the minds of the next generation.


To all teachers, we thank you. Your unwavering dedication and service to the next generation make our country one of the most admired in the world. On this World Teachers’ Day, let us come together to express our appreciation and admiration for the teachers who are building a better future for us all.
