Dear Teacher Candidates,
As you know, the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF) Workshops have been rescheduled to Friday, March 2.  
The revised schedule is now available (see above).  Please note that there have been some changes to the workshops offered in Session 3, and Session 4 has been cancelled entirely.  The workshops offered in Sessions 1 and 2 in the morning are all the same as they were on the original schedule. 
You will remain registered for and attend the workshop options you selected originally in Sessions 1 and 2.  If you forget which workshops you registered for, you should be able to see them on the EventBrite page (after login, look at “past events”).
Because of the changes to the afternoon portion of the day, all previous Session 3 and Session 4 registrations have been deleted.  You must re-register for Session 3 (EXCEPT graduating year teacher candidates attending the ETFO session – you do not need to re-register).  Because Session 4 has been cancelled entirely, your day will end after Session 3.
Registration for Session 3 will be open until Monday, February 26 at 5 p.m.  There are links to the workshop registration in the attached schedule.
Please register as soon as possible to ensure best selection.  Manual registrations are incredibly time consuming so I’m sorry to say this time I will not be able to manually add anyone after the deadline.  If you do not register, you will be marked as absent.

Original Event Details

Dear Teacher Candidates,

Registration for the Ontario Teachers’ Federation Workshops is now open!  

Before you head to the registration site, please read me first:

GRADUATING YEAR TEACHER CANDIDATES (BEd 2018, Concurrent Professional Year Math, Science, French and ECE):  You must attend at least one of the “Role of Federation” sessions.  The one(s) you will attend depends on what your career plans are.

  • If you plan to teach in a Catholic School in Ontario, Elementary or Secondary, you would register for the OECTA presentation during Session 1, 9:00 – 10:15 a.m. in room 1121.
  • If you plan to teach in a Public Board in Ontario at the Secondary level, you would register for the OSSTF presentation during Session 2, 10:30 – 11:45 a.m. in room 1121.
  • If you plan to teach in a Public Board in Ontario at the Elementary level, you would register for the ETFO presentation during Session 3, 1:00 – 2:15 p.m. in room 1101.

**You can attend more than one if you’re not sure the Board or panel you will teach in.

Year 1 (BEd 2019) teacher candidates, you’ll attend the Federation sessions in your 2nd year.  There is limited space so these must be reserved for Graduating Year teacher candidates only.


The OTF Workshops schedule is included in the attachment.  Please register for one workshop in each session, for a total of four.  You'll see that a divisional audience has been identified for each workshop.  Please register only for sessions intended for the division you’re in. 

That’s it!  Go ahead and register!  Registration links are included in the Workshop Schedule (above - workshop titles in the pdf attachment are also links), and more detailed workshop descriptions are included on the Eventbrite pages.  Space is limited so please be sure to register early to get your first workshop choices.
