Math Proficiency Test No Longer a Certification Requirement

January 04 2022

As a result of a recent decision of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice – Divisional Court, the Mathematics Proficiency Test (MPT) is no longer a certification requirement. The full text of the court’s decision can be viewed here.

This means that evidence of successful completion of the MPT is no longer required for:

  • Applicants in order to become certified; or
  • Members in order to fulfill a condition.

We are in the process of notifying affected members and applicants of this change, in addition to updating our communication materials and records, including applications, certificates and the public register (Find A Teacher). This process will take time to complete and we appreciate your patience.

The Ontario government is seeking leave to appeal the Divisional Court’s decision. The College will follow the proceedings and comply with any future court orders as well.
