Teacher Organizations - Affiliates


The Canadian Teachers' Federation was created in 1920 to ensure that teachers' opinions were heard and taken into account whenever any authority outside provincial jurisdiction was considering action that would affect teachers, or impinge on their work with students. That remains CTF's primary goal.

Active at the interprovincial, national and international levels, CTF is the national voice of teachers in promoting quality education, the status of teachers and equality of opportunity through education.

CTF also coordinates and facilitates the sharing of ideas, knowledge and skills among its thirteen provincial/ territorial Member organizations which, collectively, represent 246,000 teachers.
