The College investigates and resolves complaints about College members related to
professional misconduct, incapacity and incompetence.
Members accused of professional misconduct have a right to procedural fairness,
including the right to answer and defend, to be presumed innocent until proven otherwise,
and to have matters dealt with in a timely manner. They also have a right under
law to appeal.
By proportion, complaints against teachers are rare. The College has 238,000 members.
About 90 people on average face a public hearing in any given year.
Three-member panels of publicly appointed and teacher-elected College members rule
on each case. The panel can decide on an appropriate penalty. The penalty can range
from a reprimand, and direction to receive counselling or take courses, to losing
one’s licence to teach.
Disciplinary decisions are listed in alphabetical order.
