The Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP) and the Ontario Teachers’ Federation (OTF) are proud to sponsor the OTIP teaching Awards.

These awards recognize the excellence of our teachers in publicly funded education.  There are three categories for the awards: elementary school teacher, secondary school teacher and beginning teacher in the first five years of teaching.  A teacher can be nominated by anyone – teachers, students, parents, or general public.

Further information is available at  It would be appreciated if you would highlight and promote this award within your district, especially with teacher and occasional teacher bargaining unit presidents.  Also, a mention of the awards in your communications with members would be appreciated.

We are proud of the excellent teachers throughout the province.  This award allows us to recognize the outstanding contributions of some of those teachers to their schools and students.
