What the College Does
The College’s mandate is to regulate and govern the teaching profession in Ontario in the best interests of the public. The College:
- sets standards of practice and ethical standards
- issues teaching certificates and may suspend or revoke them
- accredits teacher education programs and courses, and
- investigates and hears complaints about individual members.
The College is also mandated to communicate with the public on behalf of the profession, which it does primarily through its website at oct.ca and this annual report.
