“TVO defines itself as an organization that encourages its audience to never stop learning. As an employee, I am consistently inspired to follow that mantra. TVO provides year-round learning, from Lunch & Learns to job shadowing opportunities.
Thanks to TVO’s values, I am now part of the Educational Partnerships team where I help to provide customer service and outreach support to the Mathify tutoring team. I enjoy working at TVO the most because I’m always encouraged to embrace change and acquire new skills. It is the perfect organization for passionate (and curious) learners like myself.”
– Tony Yeung
“Our focus on learning and personal growth, is why I’ve chosen to grow my career at TVO. In my 12 years, I’ve had the opportunity to challenge myself in multiple positions, including my current role to build our very first PMO. I have the opportunity to lead a talented and highly collaborative team of Project Managers and Business Process Engineers.
The opportunity to work in a smaller organization, allows us to learn from each other and work cross-functionally in a more seamless way. We have the opportunity to get to know each other in a friendly environment and it really feels like a family.”
– Osnat Sitbon
“Every day, I have the opportunity to work with amazingly smart and supportive people that are motivated to build things that matter.
I get to work on technologies, products and services that make a difference to many Ontarians. Once given a project not only do I have a great degree of autonomy in how it comes to life, but also trust from my team that it's accomplished to the highest standard and quality.”
– Trevor Twining
Senior Web and Mobile Developer
“Everyone that I’ve worked with here is so friendly and understanding. With two little ones I’ve really appreciated having the flexibility. I’ve also been really lucky to work with some great managers.”
– Fiona Byerley
Business Process Engineer
“Half the joy of any job you do has nothing to do with the job itself. It’s the people. At TVO it’s like walking into a village of your pals when you come in.
And the other half? The fact that our journalism isn’t guided by profit presents an awesome opportunity: we get to cover stories in Ontario that are underreported. That others simply won’t cover. And that feels pretty meaningful.”

Diversity & Inclusion
Building a team of the best people means attracting, nurturing, and retaining people from the full talent pool of Ontarians.
We believe that a diversity of perspectives and views sparks powerful innovation and learning. We celebrate what makes each of us unique. Our work better serves our communities through diverse points-of-view.
TVO’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Anti-Oppression Statement
TVO is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and recognizes the importance of using anti-oppression practices, both within our organization and in the communities we serve.
As a public agency, a media and digital learning organization, we have a responsibility to the people of Ontario to speak out against injustice. We recognize that discrimination and oppression are ongoing issues in the workplace, in media, and in education. We must continually interrogate our biases, assumptions, and privileges and will actively work to dismantle systemic and institutional discrimination in the workplace and the community at large.
1.0 Content: We strive to tell diverse stories, and to have all Ontarians see themselves in the stories we tell and in the content we produce. We recognize that educational and media organizations sometimes push forward biased narratives and stereotypes, including TVO. We are committed to being increasingly discerning about the images, content and learning resources we provide to the people of Ontario; and to ensuring they align with our belief in and commitment to dismantling unjust systems.
2.0 Workplace culture: TVO is committed to creating an equitable workplace with a culture of inclusion in which every employee feels welcome, valued, respected and included, with no barriers or limitations to where they can contribute and what they can achieve.
3.0 Workforce: At TVO, we believe in creating a workforce that reflects the diversity of the Ontarians we serve through equity in attracting, hiring, promoting and leadership opportunities for all employees and the full talent pool of Ontarians. We are continually reviewing our policies and our actions to identify discriminatory practices so that we can take immediate action to address them.
We recognize that our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion needs to be consistent and ongoing. We will continue to look inwards to identify our own shortcomings. We recognize that we may not always get it right; knowing this, we embrace the ongoing work of course correcting and moving forward. We must do everything in our power to both learn and unlearn.
Indigenous Land Acknowledgment
As leaders in education and in journalism, it is our duty and our commitment to amplify Indigenous stories, perspectives, and issues.
TVO wishes to acknowledge all Indigenous people in Ontario and their traditional territories. We acknowledge all those nations that, across the province, have called this land their home on which our headquarters, transmitters, and Hubs offices are based.
TVO is committed to providing accommodation to candidates throughout the recruitment process and to employees living with different abilities. Please let us know if you require an accommodation at any stage of the recruitment process.
