Welcome to the website of the Durham Elementary Unit of the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA)

We represent approximately 900 teachers teaching in 39 publicly funded Catholic Elementary schools across the Region of Durham.

Though the majority of our schools are situated along the urbanized lakeshore areas of Pickering, Ajax, Whitby/ Brooklin and Oshawa, we are also proud to have schools in the region’s northern communities of Uxbridge, Beaverton and Port Perry.
