Re: Qualifications to be a teacher. - February 25th 2010, 05:39 AM

You'll need a teaching certificate, which generally takes about 1 year to complete along with minimum of a Bachelor's degree in the area you wish to teach. So in total, you're looking at between 4-5 years. Certain provinces may have specific requirements, such as taking "core" courses, which includes English and another course, which there are many options for. I cannot speak for all universities and colleges but many allow you to complete your English major or specialist in order to teach, so you'd get your teaching certificate concurrently.
