On September 18, 2013, Canadian Minister of Education Liz Sandals introduced Bill 103, The Protecting Students Act, to the Ontario legislature.

Ontario bill would automatically revoke licences of teachers convicted of sexual abuse, child porn charges

The bill would also ensure that they would have to wait at least five years before they could apply to return to the classroom, said Education Minister Liz Sandals

Bill 103.
(3) Section 33 of the Act is amended by adding the following subsection:

(4.1) Despite subsections (3) and (4), if a person has had a certificate revoked for committing an act of professional misconduct that involved sexual abuse of a student, sexual misconduct or a prohibited act involving child pornography, an application under subsection (1) to have a new certificate issued shall not be made earlier than five years from the date of the order under section 30.

Although, I wonder if any of them will actually be allowed to return by the school boards? There are so many new teachers wanting to get into this job market and re-hiring someone with a child sexual abuse or child pornography conviction may be too much of a liability.

Let's hope that my naivety is correct!

let us pray that common sense will prevail.
i do agree that it would seem unlikely that someone with something like that on their record could get past the screening, but we've all seen worse, unfortunately.
what is odd, is that the possibility should even exist.
their is also the pardon process which might also conceal a conviction.

i believe that nothing can stop a devious and determined predator,
and nothing can prohibit or prevent sudden spontaneous impulsive actions.

we can only try...
