All applicants to QECO (other than eligible teacher education students) must be teacher members of AEFO, ETFO or OECTA and hold current certification with the Ontario College of Teachers before obtaining QECO services.
When submitting an application, AEFO, ETFO and OECTA teachers no longer need to provide:
- Proof of employment and membership with either AEFO, ETFO or OECTA.
- A copy of their OCT Certificate of Qualification and Registration.
If membership or certification is in doubt and/or if further documentation is required, QECO may request that a teacher provides it.
Teachers whose condition of employment does not include membership in one of the three sponsoring affiliates (Private/Provincial School teachers, etc.) must provide proof of voluntary/associate affiliate membership.
