About the College

The Ontario College of Teachers licenses, governs and regulates Ontario's teaching profession in the public interest.

Teachers who work in publicly funded schools in Ontario must be certified to teach in the province and be members of the College. 

The College sets ethical standards of practice, issues teaching certificates and may suspend or revoke them, accredits teacher education programs and courses, and investigates and hears complaints about members.

Enhancing Teacher Education

Planning New Teacher Education. Find out about the enhanced program

Initial teacher education – what people learn to become teachers – is undergoing significant and exciting change in Ontario.

Beginning on September 1, 2015, the initial teacher education program at Ontario’s faculties of education will expand to four-semesters and include twice the amount of practice teaching time (80 days, up from 40) and greater attention to students’ mental health and well-being, how to teach with technology, and diversity among other core elements.

The Ontario College of Teachers is proud to take a leadership role in developing the program requirements.

We are also proud to work with the faculties to help implement the program and with the province to make necessary legislative changes.
