The Ontario College of Teachers was established in 1997 to allow teachers to regulate and govern their own profession in the public interest. Teachers who want to work in publicly funded schools in Ontario must be certified to teach in the province and be members of the College.
The Ontario Teachers’ Federation represents all teachers in the province’s publicly funded schools. We are the unifying voice safeguarding their profession, pensions and public education.
