RTO/ERO believes the following are some of the most vital issues facing seniors in Ontario: RTO/ERO is a non-partisan organization and does not support political parties nor endorse specific candidates.
QUALITY PUBLICLY-FUNDED EDUCATION SYSTEM 350&30SFDPHOJ[FTUIBUUIFGVUVSF HSPXUI PG UIF QSPWJODF EFQFOET PO BRVBMJUZ QVCMJDMZGVOEFEFEVDBUJPO TZTUFN It is essential, therefore, that a provincial government acknowledges and supports such a system and treats all educators and educational support staff with respect. RTO/ERO supports the Ontario Teachers’ Federation and its affiliates and their members in activities that will enhance the quality of teaching and learning for teachers and students. We remember and respect those still teaching and working in the schools, colleges and universities in Ontario.
QUALITY PROVINCIAL PROGRAMS AND SERVICES Whichever party forms the Provincial Government following the October 6 election must manage fiscally and responsibly. 350&30 UIFSFGPSF VSHFTUIF1SPWJODJBM(PWFSONFOUBOEBMMQPMJUJDBMQBSUJFTUPLFFQUIFTF QSJPSJUJFTGPSFNPTUJONJOEXIJMFSFTQPOTJCMZNBOBHJOHUPSFEVDFHPW - FSONFOUEFCUPWFSUJNF Issues that should be addressed include: incentives to encourage age-friendly communities, social housing/affordable housing, provision of and support for caregiving for seniors and tax rebates for seniors and for those living in Northern Ontario to offset the rising costs of energy and transportation.
