About Us

Open Source Text Canada (OSTC) was founded in 2011 with its homebase in Toronto, Ontario.

While the creation of Open textbooks for university level courses is progressing well in Canada, the K-12 area is not.

OSTC is working to address this by demonstrating that Open projects can match commercial levels of production quality, save educational systems money — and be Canadian.

Indeed, thanks to new technologies, Open textbooks can become living documents constantly updated, branching into new forms of specialized variation — essentially a new way of teaching.
