The Ontario College of Teachers is the largest professional self-regulatory body in Canada with 200,000 members. It was founded in 1996 to license and regulate teaching in the public interest. The College ensures the province’s teachers are qualified and competent, and that students are safe in their care.
The College is responsible for ensuring new members are qualified to teach in Ontario and for accrediting teacher education programs at Ontario universities. The College promotes ongoing professional learning and ensures its quality and accessibility all across the province in both English and French. The College is also responsible for investigating complaints related to professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity.
