The Protective Services Team (PST) is made up of experienced principals and lawyers. The PST provides professional advice and legal support to OPC Members according to the provisions set out in the Protective Services Policy for employment-related issues such as 

  • disputes, complaints and investigations
  • discipline: employment (board) or professional (College of Teachers)
  • contract matters
  • general employment-related legal advice.

This support to individuals neither replaces nor duplicates board insurance coverage.

The Protective Services Consultants are all experienced principals. Often, professional advice from a consultant may resolve the Member's concern. When necessary, the Protective Services Consultant will refer the matter promptly to an OPC lawyer.
