Teacher Exchange Scheme - the League of the Empire

Does anyone have any information about an organisation called the League of the Empire, which apparently organised teacher exchanges between the UK and countries of the Empire from 1919 onwards.

An ancestor of my husband's, a lady called Isabella Scott Norwell, travelled to Canada (Montreal, en route for Toronto) in 1922, on a one year exchange with this organisation. The opportunity to visit Canada would have been attractive to Isabella, since her parents and siblings had emigrated there from the UK over the preceding ten years or so. Isabella travelled to Canada in company of several other teachers, who also gave their addresses as c/o League of the Empire.

Any information about where Isabella may have taught, or the educational system in Canada at that time, would be gratefully received.

Many thanks
