The OATG serves to bring all teachers of German in Ontario together to discuss current and planned initiatives, to share resources and ideas and to promote the learning and teaching of German in Ontario.

OATG is the provincial member association of CATG (Canadian Association of Teachers of German) and is also affiliated with CAUTG (Canadian association of University Teachers of German). Our main event is our annual "Fortbildungstag" or German teachers' PD day, hosted in Toronto, and open to all interested educators (elementary, secondary, post-secondary; German as a first language, German as a second language; Deutsch als Fremdsprache, Deutsch als Zweitsprache) across the province. We are also recognized stakeholders with the Ontario Ministry of Education, the Ontario Teachers' Federation, and other important groups. We work actively with the Goethe-Institut Toronto, the Zentralstrelle für das Auslandsschulwesen (ZfA), the PASCH-Schule Network, and other key supporters.

We also send regular communiqués by email about what is going on with German programs at schools in Ontario and what conferences, workshops, language programs, German contests, project work, learning opportunities, and more are available to friends of German.

Constitution, 1981 (to be posted shortly)

"The Association shall exist to maintain communication among, and speak for, all concerned with the teaching of German, as well as to further their professional interests."
