Ontario College of Trades announces membership fees
The Ontario College of Trades (OCOT) announced its membership fees, ranging from $60 to $120 annually.
The membership classes of apprentices, tradespersons and journeyperson candidates will pay $60 annually. Journeypersons and employer/sponsors will pay $120 a year.
“In 2013, skilled trades professionals will have the responsibility of governing and regulating their industry, just as nurses, teachers and doctors do now. This move from a government-run to an industry-driven skilled trades system will benefit consumers and Ontario’s economy,” said Ron Johnson, chair of the college’s Board of Governors and deputy director of Interior Systems Contractors Association.
OCOT will begin accepting membership in spring 2013. Apprentices and compulsory trades will have to join the college. Voluntary tradespeople with a Certificate of Qualification will have to join to keep their certificate current.
Last spring, OCOT originally proposed membership fees ranging from $50 to $600 a year. These fees will replace the current $60-fee to renew a Certificate of Qualification with the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities every three years.
