Bill 124, Fair Access to Regulated Professions Act

Bill 124, Fair Access to Regulated Professions Act

Bill 52 – Submission to the Standing Committee of the Legislative Assembly

Bill 52 – Submission to the Standing Committee of the Legislative Assembly

This bill, the Education Statute Law Amendment Act (Learning to Age 18), proposed raising the leaving age and giving credit for time spent in programs offered by non-traditional educational organizations. The College, while supporting the intent, said the bill did not deal adequately with accountability and responsibility for the educational programming.

This bill was a response to an Ontario government report on identifying and preventing sexual misconduct in schools. Although the legislation was welcome, the College found significant shortcomings: no definition of sexual misconduct and two loopholes that could allow a sexual predator to remain in or return to the school system.

Serving on Council

Ontario’s teaching profession regulates itself. This means that the people of Ontario trust teachers to govern their own profession using their collective specialized knowledge, skills and experience.
