Induction is the formal ceremony welcoming new teachers into the Association. At the beginning of every year Timberline Local No. 9 and all locals of the Alberta Teachers' Association induct members new to the profession or new to the province.

The Alberta Teachers' Association deems it desirable that all persons entering the teaching profession for the first time be called upon to participate in a ceremony of recognition and acknowledgement of their professional responsibility to pupils, parents, colleagues and country.

While recognizing the new teachers to the division, Timberline also takes the opportunity to recognize the contributions of Timberline's retirees from the past school year.
