How Teachers are Certified

Teacher certification in Ontario is regulated by the Ontario College of Teachers.

Initial Teacher Education

Teachers who wish to teach in Ontario's publicly funded elementary or secondary schools must complete a teacher education program within or outside Ontario.

Once they have successfully completed a teacher education program, teachers apply to the College for a Certificate of Qualification and Registration, which is their licence to teach in Ontario.
