To complete the registration process, you will receive a validation email from Edvantage. You must open the email and click the validation link to complete the registration process.” since we know some people miss that step.
If you do not know your Edvantage number, contact your group/union/association (note: your group/union/association is not Edvantage).
If you don’t know the name of your group:
• Are you a teacher? If so, your group name is most likely your affiliate, union or association name (e.g. AEFO, ETFO, OECTA, OSSTF, etc.).
• Are you a support staff? If so, your group name is likely your CUPE union name.
• Are you retired? If so, your group name is likely Retired Teachers Insurance Plan (RTIP) or ARTA.
• Do you have a previous physical Edvantage member card? If so, your group name should be listed on that physical card.
If you cannot locate the name of your group from the drop-down list on the registration page, please email us at: ESupport@edvantage.ca

If you have a Cogeco email address, the validation email from Edvantage was most likely blocked by Cogeco’s spam filter.
