Frequently Asked Questions


Can I ask to have my name removed from the College's public register?

No, unless it is necessary to deal with a legitimate threat to your safety. The Ontario College of Teachers Act requires that the College maintain a register of its members and make it accessible to the public. Our public register lists College members, the qualifications they hold and their status with the College. The College does not provide the public with any personal information, including members' birthdates, addresses or places of employment.

It is College policy to include a member's former and current names. Only in cases where there is documented threat to personal safety would the College consider removing former names. The intent is not to inconvenience anyone but rather to acknowledge that many teachers earn degrees or qualifications or are employed under different names and we need to link these qualifications and professional history to the person.
