NEW Professional Development Process

Wednesday, September 28, 2011
As of January 1, 2010 members are requested to retain the supporting documentation on file for your professional development. Please submit your proof of PD to TESL Ontario only if you are requested to do so. TESL Ontario will now monitor its members' PD through a random auditing process on a monthly basis. Every month, a number of accredited members are selected randomly and a PD submission request letter is mailed out to them, along with the renewal reminder letter, about a month before the renewal due date. The members receiving the submission request will be required to submit their proof of PD by their renewal expiry date to be eligible for accredited membership renewal. A one-month grace period will be granted if the required PD is not submitted by the renewal due date. At the end of the grace period, accredited membership will lapse if PD is still outstanding.
