Membership is open to anyone qualified to teach in the province and required to maintain an Ontario teaching certificate. The College is trusted to regulate the teaching profession by setting standards of practice and accrediting teacher education programs. The College also sets the requirements for entry into the profession, investigates complaints involving members and takes appropriate disciplinary action. AQ CONSULTATIONS VISITING INTERNATIONAL DELEGATIONS Provincial AQ writers gathered at the College in October to discuss teaching students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The College regularly consults with the public and the profession to develop new AQ course guidelines. The College hosted educators from Australia, the Netherlands, Japan, Spain and China last fall. They were here to learn about Ontario certification requirements, how the College provides oversight of ethics and standards, and how our investigation and hearings process works.

The College was at the Toronto book and magazine festival to spread the word about its role in protecting the public interest.
