In 1999, the College applied to the provincial government for degree granting status – which was approved in 2002. During 2000, the OCAD Act was revised bringing about changes in the way OCAD is governed. As a result of a major re-working of the OCAD/OCADFA Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) over the period of 2000/2001, the College voluntarily recognized OCADFA as the bargaining agent for Teaching Faculty and Academic Staff. OCADFA was placed in the position of being considered as a trade union within the meaning of the Ontario Labour Relations Act, and the MOA has subsequently been considered to be a collective agreement under the auspices of the Act.
