Get involved in serving the public interest
Meet the professionals who have been appointed to adjudicate matters until a new College Council, committees and rosters of eligible panellists are established. See what they do.
With project research and stakeholder consultation behind us, the College’s Transition Supervisory Officer (TSO) has advanced a series of regulatory recommendations to further define the future governance structure of the Ontario College of Teachers.
These proposals place an emphasis on expanding the opportunity for member and public involvement in the work of the College.
A key aspect of the TSO’s advice is the selection of individuals to participate on the future Council, Committees and rosters of panellists based on core competencies rather than a costly, first past the post-election process.
Information on available positions and the application process will be announced in August of this year with successful candidates beginning their new responsibilities effective January 1, 2022.
