ETFO members and supporters at a recent Pride parade
ETFO is a union committed to social justice, equity and inclusion. One of the ways that ETFO demonstrates this is by its work on LGBTQ issues in education. ETFO provides learning materials, resources, professional development/training and strategies to help its members create welcoming, safe and inclusive classrooms for all learners. ETFO believes that LGBTQ education and training creates safer working and learning conditions for everyone. Unions advocate for their members and ETFO believes it is important to support our LGBTQ members by addressing issues of homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. ETFO continues to provide ground breaking work in the area of LGBTQ inclusion in Ontario classrooms. Our LGBTQ resources and information are included here.
