In 1994, UNESCO inaugurated October 5 as World Teachers’ Day to commemorate the joint UNESCO and International Labour Organization’s (ILO) signing of the Recommendations Concerning the Status of Teachers.

World Teachers’ Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. On October 5, we celebrate World Teachers’ Day along with the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and over 100 countries worldwide to highlight the contributions of the teaching profession.
