Toward Student Success

In October, the College attended the Annual Halton District School Board Parent Involvement Committee (PIC) Conference in Milton, Ont. This year’s conference focused on creating a culture of equity, inclusion and well-being. Parents stopped by the College’s information display to learn about its part in public education.

Visting International Delegations

The College hosted educators from Australia, the Netherlands, Japan, Spain and China last fall. They were here to learn about Ontario certification requirements, how the College provides oversight of ethics and standards, and how our investigation and hearings process works.
