TECT is also 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.

The TECT Executive would like to thank all its members for their professionalism and outstanding efforts. We wish all members and their loved ones a safe and healthy school year.


  • 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)
