Ontario Teachers Network© (OTN) is a non-profit organization of Ontario teachers — independently * operated by teachers, for teachers, and for all others who care about education in Ontario — dedicated to serving the best interests of the teaching profession and its educational goals by:

(1) raising awareness of issues that affect the working conditions of teachers and the learning environment of their students in Ontario and beyond;

(2) providing an open forum for teachers to respond to these issues, express their views, and share their experiences anonymously — through comment posts and online teacher surveys.

(3) generating conversation and contact opportunities for teachers to network—both on-line and off-line—with other colleagues who share similar interests, experiences, and concerns.   

(4) presenting a public monitor — through published survey reports and teacher commentary — for comparing the consistency and effectiveness of learning environments, as well as administrative and workplace practices across schools and education districts.  

(5) giving all teachers a voice by building a central and visible record of what they care about — providing a vehicle for initiating productive liaison between teachers, parents’ groups, and duly elected trustees, and permitting frontline teachers to have a meaningful impact in the development and revision of policy affecting the education system in Ontario.
