Crown Ward Education Championship Team

The Crown Ward Education Championship Team initiative is a part of the Provincial Government’s “Reaching Higher” plan introduced in 2005. A part of this plan is to enhance “Access to Opportunities” for youth with Crown Ward status, and in particular to help Crown Wards succeed in high school and post-secondary education.
