Spelling Bee of Canada 

The Spelling Bee of Canada (SBOC) is a registered non-profit organization that focuses on providing youth, parents, teachers, and the Indigenous community across the nation with the opportunity to participate in the education process and celebrate academic achievement.

 

Since 1987, over 70,000 children have participated in SBOC's annual spelling bee competitions across Canada, providing a positive opportunity to improve their English language, spelling, comprehension, and communication skills. Their goal is to expand their participants' vocabulary, communication skills, and self-confidence, by providing a foundation for our future generation. Every child that participates in the spelling bee program is a winner!
