The Ontario Home Economics Association (OHEA) is a self-regulated body of Professional Home Economists, which promotes high professional standards among its members so that they can assist families and individuals to achieve and maintain a desirable quality of life.
What is a Professional Home Economist?
Member Home Economists (approximately 300 members in Ontario) work in all areas of the public and private sectors. We utilize our specialized education and training to assist people in enhancing their daily lives. A provincial Act respecting the Ontario Home Economics Association recognizes the right of individuals who have met the membership qualifications to use the designation Professional Home Economist (P.H.Ec.). This registered status provides for self-regulation of member home economists by their peers via an established code of ethics, rules of professional conduct and standards of practice.
As professionals we are committed to empowering individuals and families with the knowledge and skills to achieve and maintain a desirable quality of life. Click here for more information!
The Toronto Home Economics Association is issuing a statement of solidarity against anti-Black racism on behalf of the Board of Directors. Today we are naming our intentions and next time we hope to solidify the facts as we take part in social justice movements within the Greater Toronto Area and stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement in Toronto. If you wish to support the movement searchblacklivesmatter.ca to learn more on how to get involved.
Home economics started from the fabric of the home and we aim to keep it sewn and connected to all of our homes without discrimination.
