ETFO Submission to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs regarding Bill 229, Protect, Support and Recover from COVID-19 Act (Budget Measures), 2020


On November 30, 2020 ETFO President Sam Hammond made a presentation to the Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs on Bill 229. President Hammond called on the government to make the necessary investments to ensure the health and safety of students, educators and their families amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

In this submission, ETFO addressed the shortcomings of Budget 2020, and the lack of investment in public education and public services. ETFO also stated its opposition to changes to the governance structure of the Ontario College of Teachers, which would effectively end the self-regulation of the teaching profession.
