City of Ottawa opens day camp registration ahead of next 1-day teachers’ strike

The City of Ottawa says it will once again offer day camps for children affected by anticipated one-day school closures this coming Wednesday.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) announced last week that high school teachers and education workers in more than a dozen school boards are set to walk off the job on Jan. 15, unless the Ontario government takes class size increases off the negotiating table.

The Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) is among the 16 school boards that would be affected by the scheduled job action on Wednesday.

If a strike happens, all OCDSB elementary and secondary schools will close their doors on Wednesday, the school board says. The OSSTF represents staff who work in both Ottawa’s elementary and high schools.
