OCT Mandate Creep
Since it was established in 1996, the Ontario College of Teachers has expanded into areas that are beyond its legislated mandate. There should be a clear separation of roles where the College regulates the teaching profession in the public interest and advocacy for the profession is left to the organizations that represent teachers.
The “mandate creep” on the part of the College creates confusion about its role. It has also led to a misguided use of College human and financial resources and to an increase in staff and budget that College registrants have been forced to pay for. The College revenue comes solely from fees charged for registering with the College.
