Annie Kidder

Executive Director of People for Education

Annie Kidder is the Executive Director of People for Education.

Annie was born in Quebec and has lived in Labrador, British Columbia and Ontario. Her father was in mining so her family moved frequently. As a result, Annie attended 12 schools between kindergarten and grade 12, which may have been how she acquired her passion for public education.

Annie is a former theatre director and became involved in education through her children’s school.  She has two daughters, one in her first year of university and the other a university graduate. Annie is the recipient of numerous awards for her advocacy work, including awards from the Canadian Teachers’ Federation, the Ontario Principals’ Council, the Toronto Community Foundation and the Ontario Teachers’ Federation. She has spoken at conferences across the country and is regularly quoted in the media as an expert on education issues.
