Articles and reports: 81-004-X20060029249


This article draws on the Survey of Principals (SOP) which was conducted by Statistics Canada during the 2004-2005 school year. It provides an overview of the characteristics of school principals in Canada, their perceptions of the match between the actual and the ideal level of responsibility they have for various tasks, their job satisfaction, and their perceptions of the extent to which the proper functioning of their schools is affected by problems within the school.

The SOP is part of a research project sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). It was developed in partnership with a team of researchers from the Faculties of Education at the Université de Montréal, University of Toronto, Simon Fraser University and Université de Sherbrooke.
