Coalition of Educational Assistants Of Ontario (CEAO)
CEAO and EWAO
September 13, 2018
The Coalition of Educational Assistants of Ontario (CEAO) was founded in 2001 by four (4) Independent Unions; the Educational Assistants Association, the Educational Resource Facilitators of Peel, the Dufferin Peel Educational Resource Workers’ Association, and the Halton District Educational Assistants Association to promote the interest of Educational Assistants at the provincial level and to achieve goals common to all member unions. The unions, through this coalition, represent over 7200 workers in Ontario’s education sector.
Today the CEAO not only continues to serve these purposes, but has also grown to become a voice for Educational Assistants, Designated Early Childhood Educators, Child and Youth Workers, and Social Service Workers.
