The Ontario Federation of Teaching Parents

The OFTP provides links to Canadian curriculum, educational games and resources, publishers and suppliers of educational materials as a service to the homeschooling community in Ontario. Many of these companies do provide educational discounts!

If you are an OFTP member, please check out our Members’ Discounts for special discounts and coupon codes for our membership.

Some of these links may be affiliate, meaning that if you purchase through our link, the OFTP will receive a small percentage of your purchase at no cost to you. Thank you for supporting the OFTP!

You are not required to follow the Ontario curriculum nor use the same materials as the schools. However, if this is what you choose to do and you’d like to see the list of textbooks approved by the Ontario Ministry of Education for use in schools, please visit

Inclusion of any business on this list does not constitute an endorsement by OFTP. We share this information to let homeschoolers know what’s available, not necessarily what’s recommended. Although it benefits the resource provider to be listed here, it is not an advertisement to serve the purposes of the provider, it is a listing to serve the informational needs of homeschoolers looking for assistance or learning opportunities outside of the home.
