Recruiting Ontario Teachers at Canada's Largest Education Job Fair

2018 Edtalent Spring Job Fair Banner

Ontario teachers will have the opportunity to meet with recruiters from 20 British Columbia school districts at Canada's largest teacher job fair in Toronto. On April 20th, school districts representing every region of BC will attend the Ed Talent Spring Job Fair at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel from 10 am to 3 pm.

Ontario teachers seeking full-time, part-time or on-call positions will be pleasantly surprised to learn that BC schools are still hiring for this school year and in the next. Currently, there are over 400 teaching jobs available in BC's urban and rural communities.

Teachers in all subject areas and grade levels are in-demand. There is, however, a particular need for teachers in specialized roles. Teachers in Special Education, Learning Assistance, French Immersion, Technology Education, Counselling, Librarianship, and School Psychology are needed province-wide. In many school districts, teachers teaching on-call (TTOCs) are in short supply, and those working on-call work full-time hours.

This is the third time that a large contingent of BC school districts will be in Toronto, which shows the province's keenness on attracting Ontario teachers to British Columbia.

In the past couple of years, BC has seen an inflow of Ontario teachers attracted by the province's lifestyle advantages and professional opportunities. Furthermore, newly certified and early career teachers can be hired into continuing roles immediately, which is an attractive prospect for those eager to start teaching in their own class. And teachers that work as substitutes on the supply list receive the same scale pay as do teachers with continuing contracts.

For Ontario teachers, attending the EdTalent Job Fair is an excellent opportunity to mingle with BC school districts and learn more about the next steps in making a future in British Columbia.
