The Ontario College of Trades, which will offer no classes and teach no courses, is set to mail out fees invoices in April 2012 to licensed sheet metal workers, plumbers, electricians and heating and air conditioning mechanics. Those are just the four “compulsory” (must pay the $120 annual fee) trades that the College is targeting in the home improvement industry. Another 20-odd trades, in other industries, will also be required to pay these fees.
In this video segment, Canadian Contractor’s Rob Koci and Steve Payne talk about the controversy surrounding these fee requests and read a couple of contractor’s comments about the College.
And Rob talks about RenoSummit, the training seminars recently conducted in Vancouver and Calgary.
