Continuing Education Day School Benefits

Benefits for CON ED Day School Teachers

OSSTF members who are within a Contract assignment for Adult Day School of 90 calendar days or longer are eligible for the OSSTF benefits plan as part of our Central deal.

Below you will find the following documents:

  • Memo re Adult Day Teacher Eligibility: provides details regarding eligibility for benefits
  • Quick Reference Guide-Oct-2022: provides highlights about the benefits available under the plan
  • Single vs Family Benefits Premiums 2022-2023 Contract Employees: provides the rates for the benefit plan

Day School Teachers who have a 90+ calendar day contract will be eligible for the plan as of their first day in the assignment. Day School Teachers who have a shorter assignment will be eligible as of the 90th calendar day from their first day worked in the assignment. Unfortunately, this means that until they have a signed contract for the second term in a row, they will not know if they will gain eligibility. But, if they do, they will be able to submit eligible expense claims dated back to the beginning of their assignment. Please read the Memo re Adult Day Teacher Eligibility carefully for details.

If it has been at least three weeks since you have met the eligibility criteria to access the plan and you have not received an invitation from OTIP to join it, please contact hr.services@ddsb.ca to confirm your eligibility and whether you have been entered into the system. While you are waiting for the various systems to process your eligibility, if you are certain that you fit the criteria, you can use the benefits that you need, keep the receipts, and submit them later for reimbursement. If, after reading through the documentation, you are not sure if you do fit the criteria, please contact OSSTF District 13 office for assistance.
