September 15, 2017 – Zoltan ORBAN

Charge: Part III Provincial Offences Act summons for an offence under the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009, sec. 4 – employing or otherwise engaging individual to engage in compulsory trade without a Certificate of Qualification.

Summary: On April 30, 2015, Ontario College of Trades inspectors conducted an inspection at a Markham residence after receiving a complaint that an unqualified individual performed compulsory work. The inspectors determined that one individual engaged by Zoltan Orban was rerouting plumbing pipes for the drain and venting of a kitchen sink in a residential home, while he did not hold a Certificate of Qualification or a Statement of Membership in the compulsory trade of plumber (306A) that is not suspended, and while he was not an apprentice in the trade working pursuant to a registered training agreement that is not suspended.

On September 15, 2017 Zoltan Orban was convicted of the charge in a Newmarket court and ordered to pay a fine of $500 plus a $110 victim fine surcharge.

The Ontario College of Trades is winding down as the government takes action to modernize the skilled trades and apprenticeship system.
