History of the Student Trustee


The Education Quality Improvement Act, passed by the Canadian province of Ontario in 1997, mandated the creation of non-voting student representatives in publicly funded school boards across the province. Each year, one secondary school student is elected to serve the Board as a student trustee.

Ontario Student Trustees' Association

The Ontario Student Trustees' Association / l'Association des élèves conseillers et conseillères de l'Ontario (OSTA-AECO) is an official stakeholder in education, dedicated to representing the 1.9 million students in Ontario from the four publicly funded areas of education: English Catholic, English Public, French Catholic and French Public.

OSTA-AECO's mandate is to lobby the provincial government and collaborate with other stakeholder groups, in order to ensure that the best interests of students in Ontario are heard and acted upon. OSTA-AECO provides the support, direction and professional development that Student Trustees require to be effective and successful.

To learn more about the role of Student Trustees at the provincial level, visit the OSTA-AECO website.
