Total Solar Eclipse 2024

A once-in-a-lifetime event for Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic provinces! 

For the first time in decades, Eastern and Atlantic Canada will find themselves cast beneath the shadow of the Moon on April 8, 2024. As the Moon passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, it will create a total solar eclipse, completely blocking the  Sun from view for a few spectacular minutes. This is a truly unique phenomenon and will be a well-publicized event.

The time to start planning for this event is now!

This page will be updated regularly with new information, resources, educational materials, and training opportunities.

As we get ready for the eclipse, the main challenge right now is to ensure all youths have access to eclipse glasses to observe the eclipse safely.  If you are a school or school board representative, please read:
