Complaint Intake Form
As part of its mandate, the College of Early Childhood Educators receives and investigates complaints against members
of the College. The complaint must relate to professional misconduct, incompetence or incapacity of a member in order
for the Complaints Committee to consider it. You may wish to refer to the definition of professional misconduct found in
the Professional Misconduct Regulation (Ontario Regulation 233/08) on the College’s website. The Complaints
Committee will refuse to consider and investigate a complaint, if in its opinion, the complaint is frivolous, vexatious or an
abuse of process.
Statement on Confidentiality
The College conducts its investigations discreetly and does not comment to the public on complaints that it receives. A copy
of the complaint and relevant documents are provided to the member so that she or he has an opportunity to respond to
the complaint. In addition, it may be necessary to disclose some information during the investigation when speaking to the
member’s supervisors and witnesses to the event. If the complaint is referred to the Discipline Committee for a public
hearing, information on the matter is made available to the public.
I wish to file a formal complaint with the College of Early Childhood Educators.
