To be considered for employment as an elementary or secondary school teacher in a publicly-funded Ontario school, you must have a General or a Transitional Certificate of Qualification and Registration. The Ontario College of Teachers issues these certificates to qualified members. Requirements to teach at colleges, universities, and other postsecondary institutions are set by each institution. You do not need a Certificate of Qualification and Registration to teach at a postsecondary institution.
Please see the Teacher Employment Information page for details.
Visit the Ontario College of Teachers for information on evaluation and certification procedures.
