Members gathered at the Versailles Convention Centre in Mississauga, for an Annual General Meeting on Thursday May 12, 2016.
The meeting was held to discuss any proposed change to local by-laws and to elect the Unit Executives for the 2016-2017 school year.
Members were given a chance to listen to speeches from the candidates, followed by a question period.
After contributions from several more local units, OECTA’s total donation to the Canadian Red Cross to aid with the relief effort in Fort McMurray, Alberta has reached $35,000.
This donation is in keeping with Catholic teachers’ spirit of service and compassion. The money will help provide shelter, food, water, and other emergency needs to the tens of thousands of people who have been affected by the devastating wildfire. Our donation will be matched by the governments of Canada and Alberta.
