How do I pay the annual membership fee (AMF)?
We are unable to accept payments in-person. You can pay the AMF via:
- Debit or credit card through E-Services at oct.ca;
- Web banking. Add the Ontario College of Teachers as a payee to your bill payment listing with your financial institution. The 7-digit payment number is listed under your College registration number on the invoice that was sent to you. Payment numbers are also accessible online through your member account on oct.ca. Please note it can take up to five business days for your financial institution to remit payment to the College.
- Mail, via cheque or money order, payable to the Ontario College of Teachers. Reference your registration number. Our address is: Ontario College of Teachers, 101 Bloor Street West, Attn: Finance Unit, Toronto ON M5S 0A1. We do not accept post-dated cheques.
You will need your College registration number for this transaction. You can find your registration number on the invoice that was sent to you, on your membership card or at Find a Teacher at www.oct.ca.
To maintain your Ontario Certified Teacher (OCT) status, we must receive and process fee by the annual deadline. If your payment is not processed by then, your status will be changed to “Inactive / Non-Practising”.
