    Proposed Changes To OCT Act

    On Thursday October 25, 2018 the Provincial Government announced it would introduce legislation which, if passed, would require the Discipline Committees of the Ontario College of Teachers and the College of Early Childhood Educators to revoke an educator's certificate of registration for any act of sexual abuse of a student or child.
