Compliance and Enforcement Policy
The compliance and enforcement policy helps protect the public interest and ensures Ontarians feel confident that when they hire someone to fix their brakes or wire their homes that the work is being done by certified tradespeople.
From electricians to hairstylists to chefs to automotive service techs, we benefit from the services our tradespeople have contributed in the past, work to provide today, and will continue to build in the future.
