ETFO is a union committed to social justice, equity and inclusion. One of the ways that ETFO demonstrates this is by its work on 2SLGBTQ+ 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 2SLGBTQ+ 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 2SLGBTQ+ members by addressing issues of homophobia, transphobia and biphobia. ETFO continues to provide ground breaking work in the area of 2SLGBTQ+ inclusion in Ontario classrooms.
