Feeling refreshed for a new school year

Summer break is an excellent time to reinvigorate yourself for the next school year. Perhaps you learned a new skill, did some adventuring, read a few books, or started a new workout routine. Whatever you got up to, we hope your mind, body, and soul feel refreshed. Summer break is also an ideal time to reflect on the highs and lows of the previous school year and realign your personal goals, including those that support your health, wellness, and financial security. Let us help you with that!
You may be most familiar with Ontario Teachers Insurance Plan (OTIP) as your group benefits provider, but did you know that we also offer personal insurance coverage? Your local union and Provincial Affiliate partner with OTIP to ensure you have access to the following:

  • Exclusive car and home insurance rates. Our in-house claims services are available to support you through the claims process.
  • Three flexible retiree health, dental and travel insurance plans.
  • Life insurance and identity theft and cyber protection.

Are you a part of AEFO, CUPE, ETFO, OECTA, or OSSTF? Fortunately for you (and us!), OTIP is your exclusive auto and home insurance provider!
We don't stop at exceptional coverage and personalized service; our members also have access to contests, awards, bursaries, and special offers, including Edvantage – your exclusive savings program.

Plus, when you become an RTIP member, you'll still have access to the Edvantage savings program and the discounts you love.

Reinvesting in the community
As a not-for-profit organization, OTIP supports the communities in which our members live and work. Being good is great, but doing good is better, so we use the proceeds we generate to fund charitable programs. Learn more about our awards, bursaries, and sponsorships.
