TECT is represented throughout the city by four sub-units; Etobicoke/York, North York, Scarborough and Toronto/East York. The sub-units provide members with Professional Development funding up to a maximum of $200.00 per academic year.  Our sub-units also work hard to organize socials for all our sub-unit members. To access information about your local sub-unit, click on the sub-unit tab located on our TECT webpage.

Through our affiliation with the Toronto York Region Labour Council (TYRLC) we also advocate for Social Justice causes; The Make It Fair Campaign, Equity and Human Rights and the TYRLC Green Initiative are some of the many causes supported by TECT.  Our participation in the Pride and Labour Day Parades is another way TECT advocates for social justice issues in our communities.

 As we enter the final weeks of the school year, the TECT Executive would like to thank all its members for their professionalism and outstanding efforts. We wish everyone a safe and restful summer.

  • I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this? (John 11:25-26)
