Learn and succeed in or out of the classroom!
SOFAD’s mission is to provide school boards with the printed and online learning materials they need, given the variety of educational settings, training methods and learning paths, and to make its expertise available to other networks and organizations.
The Société de formation à distance des centres de services scolaires et des commissions scolaires du Québec (SOFAD), a not-for-profit organization, was founded in 1996. The organization is the embodiment of the shared will of the Ministère and the school boards to centralize the design, production and research and development of distance education materials.
At first, SOFAD produced only printed materials; however, in 2000 it began to offer online courses in response to the push for greater use of technology in the field of distance education.
In 2003, SOFAD introduced customized services in order to offer its expertise to businesses and organizations with specific needs in the area of training, evaluation and staff certification.
By being closely attuned to an ever-evolving market and mindful of meeting the needs of its various clients, SOFAD has become a key player in its different activity sectors in Québec and the rest of Canada.
