Inspiring Public Confidence
Looking for a College form? Find it on this page.
The Ontario College of Teachers was established in 1997 to allow teachers to regulate and govern their own profession in the public interest. Teachers who want to work in publicly funded schools in Ontario must be certified to teach in the province and be members of the College.
The College is accountable to the public for how it carries out its responsibilities. You can find the qualifications, credentials and current status of every College member on our public register of members at Find a Teacher.
The College’s legislation, the Ontario College of Teachers Act, was amended in 2006 to create the Public Interest Committee. The legislation determines the committee’s composition, membership and designation of a chair by ministerial appointment.
