About Us 

Welcome to Toronto Catholic DECEs Local 

The Toronto Catholic Designated Early Childhood Educator Local is comprised of Designated Early Childhood Educators who work within the Toronto Catholic District School Board. Our local is part of the Elementary Teacher Federation of Ontario. The Executive is elected bi-annually by the membership. The Toronto Catholic DECE Local works to regulate relations between the Toronto Catholic District School Board and the DECEs employed within the board, including but not limited to securing and maintaining, through collective bargaining, the best possible terms, and conditions of employment. Thank you for committing to be an important member of the Union!


Meet our team of dedicated staff.
