The article explores basic features of postgraduate teacher education in Canada, the country that provides strong quality assurance and accreditation process as well as internationally recognized degree-level studies. The authors analyze the structure of continuous teacher experiences on the example of universities known as the Group of Thirteen (G13) and define its significance in professional pedagogical education. These institutions are among the most research-intensive in the country and specialize in offering joint research and internationally educated professional programs.

The study highlights the significant role of research integration into teaching as the main feature which is implemented in numerous courses. The participation of graduate students in the learning process is an important part in the development and improvement of training programs, courses and learning technologies, classroom discussions, and continuous feedback in the preparation and evaluation of current and final control of students' knowledge.

The authors reveal that the modern system of postgraduate teacher education in Canada is based on a number of conceptual approaches: behavioral, personal, cognitive, socio-psychological and androgogical. The main forms of teacher training in Canada tend to be short-term and long-term courses; thematic conferences and workshops; and educational satellite channels.

The authors conclude that the theory and practice of postgraduate teachers' training in Canada is one of the examples of constructing a system of continuous pedagogical education, as the experience and achievements of Canada in this sphere, with all its national identity, can serve as a benchmark for creative and critical rethinking of useful and productive ideas, specific ways of the education system development, in particular for Russia, which is currently marked by an active process of change in this field.
