Today, immigrants from all over the world continue to come to Ontario for the prospect of bettering their lives. Teacher education programs across the province have just implemented the largest reforms to their programs since Normal Schools and colleges of teachers were integrated as Faculties of Education within their respective universities. In 1903, Normal School program expanded to one year, but remained of low quality through the interruptions of the First World War, the Great Depression, the Second World War, and the great post-war baby boomer teacher shortages. Through the first half of the nineteenth century there was no government-sanctioned teacher education program within the colonized landscape known as Upper Canada. Settler parents worried about their children's religious and moral grounding being corrupted by a standardized government agenda. In 2015, the Ontario government implemented a new two-year teacher education extended program in part to deal with the current surplus of qualified teachers and towards enhancing their competencies as teacher researchers.
