Summary: On April 25, 2017, Ontario College of Trades inspectors conducted an inspection at a detached home being constructed at 270 Sweet Gale Street, Waterloo, ON. The inspectors determined that two individuals employed or otherwise engaged by Sheldon Plumbing were installing ring connectors to plastic water piping while they did not hold Certificates of Qualification or Statements of Membership in the compulsory trade of plumber (306A) that were not suspended, and while they were not apprentices in the trade working pursuant to a registered training agreement that is not suspended.

On November 17, 2017, Sheldon Plumbing was convicted of the charges in a Kitchener court and ordered to pay a fine of $400 plus a $70 victim fine surcharge.
