RTO/ERO Toronto History

Our History

The Formation of Districts
When the first Senate Meeting of STO was held in March 1968, the voting delegates were representative of the five affiliates of the Ontario Teachers’ Federation. Later that year, an Extension Committee was established to organize STO into geographic Areas across the province based upon the provincial county board system. On December 4, 1968, the Areas were set up:

Area 1 / Fort William   *   Area 2 / Sault Ste. Marie   *   Area 3 / North BayArea   *   Area 4 / Windsor

Area 5 / Waterloo   *   Area 6 / St. Catharines   *   Area 7 / Dufferin, Peel, Malton, Simcoe

Area 8 / Toronto Area   *   Area 9 / Peterborough   *   Area 10 / Ottawa

In 1972 the province was reorganized into Districts. In 1973, the necessary changes were made to the Constitution and some adjustments were made to the composition of districts. The first Senate meeting to which all voting delegates were named by a district was held in May 1974.
