to the Ontario Association of Teachers of German web site.

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 produce and distribute an annual newsletter, Rundbrief, which keeps all members of the OATG informed about what is going on with the German programs at schools in Ontario and what is happening in the OATG in terms of conferences, workshops, language programs, German contests, project work on teaching materials etc.

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."
