Impending Changes to the Regulation of Teachers’ Professional Conduct and Practice: Issues and Association Response

The proclamation of Bill 15, the Education (Reforming Teacher Profession Discipline) Amendment Act, on May 31, 2022, set into motion a process for creating the office of the Alberta Teaching Profession Commissioner to oversee teacher and teacher leader conduct and competency complaints for the profession.

The legislation was developed without input from the Alberta Teachers’ Association and would apply not only to active members of the Association who are currently subject to the Association’s process but also to all teachers and teacher leaders under the Education Act, including superintendents, chief deputy superintendents and certificated district office staff, as well as certificated staff of charter and private schools.
