Who We Are


Since 1968, The Retired Teachers of Ontario/ Les enseignantes et enseignants retraités de l’Ontario (RTO/ERO) has provided excellent programs and services.

Not only services for teachers, but also for school and board administrators, educational support staff and college and university faculty in retirement.

For close to 50 years, RTO/ERO continues to provide service to members who range in age from 46 to over 109.

RTO/ERO is the only organization with representation from elementary, secondary, public, Catholic and francophone schools.

We also welcome college and university faculty and educational support staff from schools and school boards in our area any from any region in in Ontario.


AND we advocate for all seniors in Ontario and across Canada!



District 22 is made up primarily of educators who worked or live in the former Cities of Etobicoke and York. With the amalgamated City of Toronto, we will continue to attract and serve retiring members from the western sections of the city.

The district has been growing steadily and today we face a new challenge to our growth. In April 1974 the Provincial records show that District 22 had a membership of 686 members. Today we have about 2470 members. Making contact with newly retired teachers is becoming increasingly difficult due to the challenges of the Privacy Act which restricts the distribution of data to our organization. Add to this the fact that Etobicoke and York are no longer identifiable entities within the Megacity and it is clear that we have a major task ahead of us to maintain our membership. If you are a new retiree from this area please contact one of our executive members to obtain more information about our group.

Please contact our Webmaster to report any errors on the Etobicoke/City of York web pages or if there are any concerns or ideas that you wish the RTO/ERO District 22 Executive to pursue.
