About

District 16 City of Toronto was formed in 1973 and is the largest of RTOERO’s 51 districts.

Our members include those who work in and retire from education – including child care and early years, schools and school boards, post-secondary, private schools and more. We play a key role in helping members stay active and connected – with each other and the community.

District 16 is situated on the ancestral traditional territories of the Ojibway, the Anishinaabe and the Mississaugas of the Credit. We recognize that this territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. We also acknowledge the urban Indigenous communities in our district.

District 16 City of Toronto recognizes the inequities connected to colonization and commits to working towards creating a just, inclusive and vibrant community for all.

We invite our members to reflect the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s calls to action.
