Ontario English Catholic Teachers

Member Engagement Awards

OECTA’s Member Engagement Awards program honours achievement among OECTA units for their unique and innovative approach in engaging members and helping to spread the good news about our amazing teachers and our Catholic education system. The program is an opportunity for units to share their best and most effective member engagement practices.

All activities/initiatives eligible for consideration that have taken place between AGM 2021 and AGM 2022. Units often make exceptional efforts around Catholic Education Week, Thanksgiving and Christmas to promote the positive contributions of Catholic teachers and Catholic education in their communities. Also, this past year local bargaining and COVID-19 have presented both challenges and opportunities for units to engage members in new and different ways.
