The central agreement with teachers represented by the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) has been ratified by school boards and the union and agreed to by the Government of Ontario.

AEFO represents approximately 11,950 members in the French-language Catholic and French-language public K-12 education sector.

The central agreement with AEFO teachers demonstrates the government's commitment to reaching deals that protect our children's futures and invest in their potential.

The government also agreed to ratification of agreements with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) on Nov. 4, 2019, the Education Workers' Alliance of Ontario (EWAO) on Feb. 4, 2020, the Ontario English Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA) on April 8, 2020, the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) on April 28, 2020 and the Ontario Council of Educational Workers (OCEW) on May 4, 2020.

These agreements were reached while respecting taxpayers, students and families, and recognizing the important contributions of frontline workers in our education system. It reflects the government's commitment to a fiscally sustainable publicly funded education system.

Collective agreements between school boards and AEFO bargaining units include both central and local terms. The central terms are now resolved. In order to complete the collective bargaining process, local terms need to be reached between each school board and its AEFO bargaining units.

The three-year collective agreements will be effective Sept. 1, 2019 through to Aug. 31, 2022.
