After you complete your graduate teacher education or post-baccalaureate teacher certification program, D'Youville College recommends to the appropriate body that you have met all requirements and are eligible to apply for the teaching certificate. The decision to issue a teaching certificate is made by the New York State Education Department or the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT).
The Ontario certification program is designed for Canadian citizens residing in Ontario who wish to teach in Ontario.
Important, please note: Students who are not citizens of Canada or those who wish to teach in a province other than Ontario may not fulfill the necessary requirements. It is your responsibility to determine whether our program will prepare you for your goals. For further information, contact the Ontario College of Teachers at (416)961-8800 or toll free in Canada at 888-534-2222, or visit their web site at www.oct.ca.
