Substitute and Letter of Permission Information

  • “Teachers On Call” are teachers certified by the Teacher Regulation Branch.
  • “Non-certified Replacements” do not have certification from the Teacher Regulation Branch.
  • "Letter of Permission (LOP)" -  temporary certification approval by the Teacher Regulation Branch.  

Certified teachers are sought before non-certified teachers for both short and long-term assignments. Non-certified teachers on call are used only when there are no certified teachers available to replace regular teachers. Hiring uncertified candidates for longer-term assignments can occur under a "Letter of Permission (LOP)" if there are no certified teachers available.  

The hiring process involves submitting required documentation and professional references (3). Interviews would be arranged for the shortlisted candidates. SD91 accepts applications year-round.
