WHAT WE DO
We hope to continue to support educators who want to share their talents and ideas with like minded professionals.
DKG Quebec joined the DKG International Society in 1956. The Quebec chapter connects you to hundreds of organizations as allies to support women in education.
Everything we do is designed to meet specific needs of the community. Our purpose is to support women in education whether through mentoring or through scholarship; to support teachers in the classroom; and to encourage professional growth.
This foundation has a vision of creating a better world for teachers, partnering with global and local organizations to widen our reach, increasing our membership and helping you.
The Speaker Series is completed for the 2022-23 year. DKG thanks you for your support! Stay tuned for future events!
Fundraising Spotlight The Art for Aid Project / The Sew & Sew Skills Lab
The Art for Aid Project and the Sew & Sew Skills Lab are two Indigenous education projects that are run through the Canadian registered charity, I Love First Peoples. www.ilovefirstpeoples.ca. In consultation with members of DKG Ontario, both of these projects were thought to be very beneficial and, should this be selected as the Canada Project for the next biennium, we would recommend that all money raised would be divided equally between the two projects.
The Sew & Sew Skills Lab equips remote community schools with sewing labs, including quality sewing machines and a full complement of sewing supplies, so educators can teach valuable life skills through traditional projects in the school setting. Support for this program not only equips the classrooms but also covers the costs of shipping to remote regions of the north and across Canada. The program’s replenishment and school wish lists are addressed annually.
The Art for Aid project currently supports over sixty-four (64) Indigenous schools across all of Canada. Every province and territory in Canada has at least one school involved in this project. Most of the schools are kindergarten to grade 8. The project connects Indigenous youth to art through access to quality art learning tools to support educators in providing art exploration for youth in remote communities in Canada. Art is a powerful medium that brings healing, ignites creativity and gives youth a voice. Boredom is one of the greatest contributors to poor mental health; coupled with isolation and poverty, mental health becomes a high priority for young people and art can help youth in powerful and positive ways. Art spans language and allows young people to have a visual voice.
Donations for this program are greatly appreciated. Please send donations to firstname.lastname@example.org to the attention of Ardis Root.

“Working as an administrator in education can be difficult and lonely at times. In DKG Quebec, I have found a community of amazing women who share many of my interests and concerns. I love the opportunities to learn and share but to also have some fun too.”
“If I could rate DKG Quebec an 11 / 10, I would. I love what they do, what they stand for and the supportive network they have created.”
“During my teaching career I found that the fellowship I experienced whilst a member of the society was most inspirational and motivating. Now as a retiree it is still most important to me.”
“I love to learn things I can take back into the class and use with students.”
DKG Quebec are proud to be federate members of the Montreal Council of Women.
