Long Term Occasional (LTO) List application process

At specific times each year, OECTA teachers on our Occasional Teaching Roster are invited to apply for placement on our Long Term Occasional (LTO) List. As identified in Regulations 274/12 and 148/13, you must have been on the Occasional Teaching Roster for at least 10 teaching months, and have taught as an occasional teacher in one or more of our schools for at least 20 full teaching days (or equivalent) during the 10 teaching month period that is within the five years preceding the day the application is submitted.

Pursuant to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, (AODA) if you require accommodations at any time throughout the application process, please email Jean-François Belanger, Manager of Human Resources at so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Required documents

When the process opens, the following information must be received before the deadline in order to be considered for an interview.

  • current resume
  • current Ontario Teaching Certificate (from OCT website)
  • current Pastoral Letter from your Roman Catholic Parish Priest (original only, no older than one year from the date of your LTO List application) OR a completed Pastoral Reference Form which must indicate that the candidate is a practicing Catholic and a member of the parish (no older than one year from the date of your LTO List application)
  • list of all teaching assignments including dates, FTE and locations which clearly demonstrates that you have worked at least 20 full days (or equivalent) in any 10 month period that is within the last five years. You can obtain this information from ATE. If you are doing or have completed an LTO, a copy of the letter that was emailed to you confirming your LTO will suffice.

You are also required to approach two school principals and/or vice principals that you have worked over the past 12 months at the Ottawa Catholic School Board (LTO assignments and/or day-to-day supply work is acceptable) and request that they complete the Principal Recommendation Form

LTO List Applications are not currently being accepted.

The opportunity to apply for placement on the LTO List will open again in September 2019. Please continue to monitor this site for further information. E-mail with questions.
