Ontario Teachers' culture

Ontario Teachers' culture is based on innovation, agility and partnership. Our employees have worked to set the bar high so Ontario Teachers' continues to be recognized as an industry thought leader, investment partner of choice and provider of world-class member services.


We look for new approaches and solutions to create better value for the pension plan and ultimately our members – the teachers of Ontario. We encourage employees to work together and share diverse ideas and approaches to continue our history of innovation.


We believe that agility is important. We think and act quickly, but prudently, to maintain the highest level of integrity, accountability and risk consciousness.



Strong partnerships are important. Partnership involves collaboration and the free exchange of ideas across the organization. This increases our agility and ability to innovate and creates an environment of continuous learning.
