uk teacher coming to canada

Post Posted: Mon Jan 16, 2006 3:55 am

Hi I am a UK trained teacher coming to canada (Calgary). My husband has a work permit for 6 months. Will I be able to teach even though I shall only hold an open work permit.

Any replies greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Each province in Canada regulates its own teachers, and teachers have provincial certification, not federal. As a reference, you can check www.oct.ca which is Ontario College of Teachers and regulates teaching profession in Ontario. You may try to google "alberta college of teachers".

I doubt that you would be able to teach in public schools without going through the certification process first; you can also check private schools.

Hope this helps,
Gorian

Hi

thanks for your reply. I have emailed Alberta Training and they have told me that I can teach on a work permit as long as I get a letter of authorization from the Superintendant of School.

Thanks again
Zoe
