Canada’s Outdoor Learning Store was developed as a result of a lack of this type of service being offered in Canada. We saw a need to provide a one-stop-shop for outdoor learning equipment and resources, while also providing additional supports for educators. And why not support non-profits from coast to coast to coast at the same time?! With this idea, Canada’s Outdoor Learning Store was born.
The purpose of Canada’s Outdoor Learning Store is to provide easy access to excellent outdoor learning equipment and resources to schools and organizations across Canada. This initiative is run as a social enterprise which allows us to provide a return for outdoor learning non-profit organizations from across the country. We welcome your feedback and ideas for potential products, and we thank you for your support of this growing social enterprise.
Outdoor learning is being increasingly adopted to enhance student learning, and to support the physical, emotional and mental health of teachers and students. We’re pleased to provide a variety of tools that can support educators & learners in this way, while also helping to address other key social and environmental issues such as the climate crisis, the rapid loss of biodiversity, nature-deficit disorder, and the obesity epidemic.
