International Developement Week may be officially celebrated only one week of the year each February, but we believe that acknowledging the role of Canadians in international cooperation and the importance of the SDGs should be a conversation all year long. We have compiled several resources to educate and inspire Canadians of all ages on global issues and sustainability. Check them out below!
Student Book List
Our 2022 Reading List for Global Students features books for students from Kindergarten-Grade 12. We encourage all students to become global students by exploring the world through reading!
If you’re an educator, we hope that you share these books with your classroom to encourage students to become global citizens for life.
Annual Book List
This year, our book list has been organized into five categories: inspiring women, resilient children, innovators & healers, sustainability stories and indigenous voices.
Explore books from different perspectives and share them with your family, friends, and with us online!
This year's documentary list features six films that highlight themes of international issues and global sustainability. After watching, join the conversation online! Use the hashtag #IDW2022 and share what documentary you watched or some of your other favourites that are not on this year's list.
