What is Bell Let’s Talk?

Bell Let’s Talk Day is Wednesday, January 26, 2022 | version française

Bell Let’s Talk is a multi-year charitable program dedicated to the promotion and support of mental health across Canada. Since 2010, Bell has committed more than $100 million to support a wide range of mental health organizations, large and small, from coast to coast focusing on anti-stigma, care and access, workplace mental health and research.

Every Action Counts

Now more than ever, every action counts. On Bell Let’s Talk Day, Bell will donate more towards mental health initiatives in Canada by contributing 5¢ for every applicable text, call, tweet or TikTok video using #BellLetsTalk, social media video view and use of our Facebook frame or Snapchat filter.

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month Canadians from sea to sea to sea are invited to take “A Pittance of Time” to reflect on what it means to be Canadian: to take a moment in quiet reverence no matter where they are and experience deep emotional heartfelt gratitude for their individuality, community, culture, safety, peace and all of the freedoms that we enjoy in Canadian life.

The song “A Pittance of Time” was inspired and composed by Terry Kelly in 1999 as a result of an incident in a drug store – when a man chose not to join other customers who were taking two minutes of silence in honour of our veterans. As Terry’s surrogate parents at the (residential) Halifax School for the Blind, were retired military women and men, Terry was determined to commit future energies towards creating a greater awareness of the sacrifices made to provide freedom and a more comfortable life for each of us!

What is the Common Core Basic Education Program?

The Common Core Basic Education Program is the result of decisions taken by the Ministère de l’Éducation et Enseignement Supérieur / MEES with respect to the education reform in Québec.

It consists of 13 programs of study in the first phase of adult general education, known as Common Core Basic Education.

These programs of study are made up of courses spanning three levels: Literacy, Presecondary and Secondary Cycle One.’’

All Adult General Education services and programs of study of the 2016-2017 school year have been described in a reference document produced by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur.

An electronic version of this document is available on the website of the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur at www.education.gouv.qc.ca

In Mathematics, the new Adult General Education curriculum will be mandatory as of the next school year meaning that all old codes will be depleted as of June 30th, 2017.

Please, note that all students are now registered in CCBE programs of study.

In Mathematics, please find in the tables below the correspondence between the old codes and the new codes:
