Requirements for Teaching Certificates in Canada = Conditions d'obtention des brevets d'enseignement au Canada.
Canadian Education Association, Toronto (Ontario).
This bilingual guide is intended as a quick reference to requirements for basic teacher certificates in Canada. For each province and the two territories, the guide outlines educational requirements for obtaining certification; grade levels for which each type of certificate is valid; the conditions under which a teaching certificate becomes permanent; and notes on the certification necessary for teaching in independent schools. Six provinces (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland) have reached an agreement that enables kindergarten to grade 12 teachers who are trained and certified in one province to be immediately certified in the five other provinces; the agreement respects the academic and professional standards of individual provinces. If teachers require additional training to meet certain requirements in their new province, they will be certified for an interim period and given time to complete the necessary training. Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick have bilateral agreements with each other regarding teacher certification. For definitive information about certification requirements or equivalencies, a list of contact addresses is provided. (LL)
