Hearing Schedule

The public hearings usually take place at the Teacher Regulation Branch (TRB) office in Vancouver between 9:30am and 4:00pm unless otherwise noted. The public may be excluded from all or part of a hearing pursuant to section 61(2) of the Teachers Act. If you would like to attend a hearing, please read the Visitor Protocol for Hearings and make a reservation using the Visitor Reservation Form available through the hearing schedule below.

Visitors are responsible for checking the TRB's website frequently for updates before they attend a hearing as dates and times are subject to change without notice. It is also possible that a citation might resolve by consent, even right up to the commencement of the hearing, and that the hearing may therefore not proceed. All updates will be listed on the hearing schedule below.

Citations are issued by the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation and set out allegations against a certificate holder (or former certificate holder) that will be considered at a hearing. Please note that allegations in a citation are unproven unless and until a hearing panel has determined their validity.

All discipline decisions and, in the case of a consent resolution, the terms and disciplinary outcome, will be published on the TRB site in due course, except in cases where non-publication is required in order to protect the victim(s).

To verify whether someone holds a BC Ministry of Education teaching certificate or a letter of permission to teach in BC, search our Online Registry.

Office of the Commissioner for Teacher Regulation

Ensuring that concerns about the competence and conduct of certificate holders are addressed independently, fairly, expeditiously and in the public interest.
