Ontario English Catholic Teachers

Who We Are

We are Ontario's Catholic teachers.

We teach in classrooms from Kindergarten to Grade 12 in publicly funded English Catholic schools, with almost 45,000 teachers working across the province. We are passionate about our work and care deeply about the quality of education in this province.

We take a values-based approach to education, incorporating important lessons – like empathy, resilience and respect – into every subject we teach. We are proud that our students consistently become active and engaged members of society in Ontario and beyond.

As an association, we advocate for the welfare of teachers and our students, promote the principles of Catholic education and the strength of Ontario’s publicly funded Catholic education system, and support efforts to achieve social and economic justice.
