Canadian Contractor publisher Rob Koci and editor Steve Payne talk about what’s in the mailbox to you (if you’re a subscriber… if not, visit SUBSCRIBE at the bottom of this website) in the March/April issue of our magazine.
In this video we talk about the Ontario College of Trades and the OutRank Salary Survey, both given wide coverage in this upcoming issue of the magazine.
Regarding the Ontario College of Trades: What powers DO they really have? The “director of enforcement” for OCOT, Bob Onyschuk, told Rob (see video here) last week that his compliance officers don’t need a complaint to ask for your papers in the province. Then he sort of said, well, yes they do. Then he said, no they don’t… Oh well, watch for yourself.
Regarding the Salary Survey: $69,550 is the median Canadian Contractor annual salary. Now, that’s not bad, considering that it includes people billing $10,000 a year, as part-timers. Contractors are a deservedly well-paid community.
