RTO/ERO Awards

RTO/ERO Service-To-Others Awards

As teachers we spent much of our lives serving others – our students. It is not surprising that, in retirement, our organization devotes a portion of its resources in assisting members to continue serving their community. To this end, the provincial organization each district has an opportunity to support the application of a member’s favourite organization in the amount of up to $4,000. (The total available funds is established annually by Senate.)

Submission details for Toronto are printed in our Newsletter and E-zine when published by the province.

A member may also check the RTO/ERO website. Here, one may download a sample application, view lists of provincial recipients, and download the official application when posted.
