Happy New Year One & All
In Ontario certain trades are classified as Compulsory Trades; Electrician, Plumber, Automotive Technician, Heating & Air Conditioning to name a few.
When you take your car in for service a large majority of certified repair centers proudly display the technicians certification scroll providing you the customer with confidence that a competent technician is carrying out the repairs.
That piece of mind is available to you at home as well; How?
When you make a call or book an appointment for service at your home , how do you know what your getting? Don’t forget your inviting that service person into your home and you have a right to ensure that persons identity and ask them for their trade license.
After all your home is your largest investment and your families safety should never be taken for granted.
Under the Ontario College of Trades Act 2009 there are fines for the Employer , Individual,Apprentice if they are carrying on business or passing themselves off as trades person.
I have provided the Public registry search for the College of Trades and the Electrical Safety Authority links for further info.
