Who we are and what we do

LesPlan Educational Services Ltd. is a Canadian-owned and operated company that has been providing teachers across the country with current events resources since 1990. Our goal is to help teachers develop students' understanding of and ability to critically assess current issues and events by providing quality, up-to-date, affordable, ready-to-use resources.

We currently publish three current events resources, available in both English and French:

1. Currents4Kids/Infos-Jeunes – an online, interactive current events resource for students in grades 3 and up that features one news story per week plus quizzes, links, response questions and teaching strategies;

2. The Canadian Reader / Nos Nouvelles – a literacy-based compendium of Canadian news stories and informational cartoons written for students in grades 3 and up;

3. What in the World? / Le Monde en Marche (Level 1 and Level 2) – a collection of top national and international news stories with accompanying assignments, designed for students in grades 5 and up.

Our guarantee

We continually strive to maintain our reputation for consistently providing top-quality resources. If any of our publications fail to meet your expectations, you may cancel your subscription at any time and receive a full refund for all remaining issues.

It is a relief to have a resource that fits with the curriculum and is teacher-friendly (ready to hand out). The added bonus of having the answers to the questions and discussion notes makes my life just a little bit easier.
