Hi there! Nice to see you. We’re Relay Education, formerly known as TREC Education.

In February 2018, TREC Education rebranded and officially became Relay Education. We have a new name and appearance to match our vibrant programs and activities.

We want people to feel empowered when they engage with us and to know we are inclusive, energetic and vital. We are the same hard-working team behind a new name and look.

1. Why did you change your name?

Our programming has grown tremendously since launching the charity as ‘TREC Education’ in 2011. The time was right for us to discover and develop a new look, which would carry us into the next phase of our work across Canada. Our new name is easy to remember and speaks to our character.

2. Why Relay?

3. Are you changing your focus or programs?
