The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) represents more than 83,000 elementary teachers, occasional teachers, Designated Early Childhood Educators, and educational and professional support personnel in elementary schools across Ontario. ETFO is known as one the the foremost providers of teacher professional learning in Canada and is gaining a reputation for its work internationally.
Our reputation is based upon providing professional learning that is relevant, grounded in social justice and equity, and teacher-friendly. Unlike other organizations we refuse to rest on our laurels; we constantly strive to improve our offerings based upon candidate and instructor feedback. ETFO firmly believes that you don’t get to be the best by being like the rest. Similarly, we also believe that once recognized as the best you should always work hard to be better – this is something we work at day in and day out. We will not stop working hard to ensure that teachers have access to the best professional learning in Ontario.
