Ontario College of Trades seeks input on membership requirements
The Ontario College of Trades (OCOT) is looking for industry input, according to a press release Tuesday.
The college is calling for comments on proposed regulatory provisions regarding: the classes of membership for OCOT; the requirements for obtaining and maintaining registration with OCOT; and the terms, conditions and limitations on statements of membership and certificates issued by OCOT to members.
The entity was legislated in 2009 and was formed as a response to one of the recommendations suggested in the 2008 Compulsory Certification Project Review by Tim Armstrong. Among its mandates are ratio reviews and promoting the skilled trades to youth.
The purpose of this consultation is to give the public an opportunity to provide written comments that will be considered by OCOT as the regulations pertaining to membership are finalized.
The comment deadline is April 19.
