Using the Message Centre

School administrators, educators, and Board IT members can access the Message Centre, where they can find all communications sent by EQAO.  

  1. 1. Sign in as a teacher, school administrator, or IT professional.

2. Access the Message Centre either by:

  • clicking You have no new messages or [Number] New Message(s), on the home page;
  • clicking Message Centre, at the top of the page.

3. In the Message Centre page, click one of the following tabs: All Messages, Unread Messages, or Archived Messages.

4. For every tab, these three columns are displayed:

  • Subject: identifies the subject of the message.
  • Sent on: identifies the date and time when the message was sent.
  • Archive: displays either an Archive or Unarchive button.

Note: Archiving messages does not permanently delete them.

5. Click any message to display its content on the right side of the screen.

Important: Messages can only be received and cannot be replied to or forwarded.

Note: The instructional video is showing an example of a school administrator’s Message Centre but the same format applies to a teacher.
