Welcome to the website of the Eastern Unit of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association.
The Eastern Unit represents 850 elementary and secondary teachers in 48 schools across our region.
This website is designed to provide our members with information about the services and programs of OECTA, both at the local and provincial level. It is our hope that our website will also serve as a resource to those who wish to learn more about our local association.
Teachers experiencing difficulties in their professional lives, or whose personal problems are affecting their work, can contact the department for advice on performance appraisals, general and career counselling, professional ethics, pensions, interpersonal disputes and personal crises. Please review the “Quick Tips for Managing Stress” flyer for more ideas on how to deal with stress in your life.
Unit P.D. Fund
Each member of the Eastern Unit can apply for a grant of up to $ 200 for professional development. The money can be used to attend workshops/conferences or upgrade qualifications through college, university or AQ courses. Please see the PD policy.
