Abstract: Professional and amateur astronomers in Canada are working together to strengthen - and form new - partnerships with the formal and informal education communities, as well as Aboriginal, arts and cultural, and other organizations: “To offer an engaging astronomy experience to every person in Canada, and to cultivate partnerships that sustain public interest in astronomy.” Our ideas have much in common with those of other IYA nations, especially our US neighbour with whom we enjoy close liaison through the AAS, but we seek to exploit unique Canadian opportunities.
