Alec Caldwell tips us off to a mandatory online course recently introduced in Ontario by the Ministry of Labour. Pretty well everyone in our industry has to complete it. It will take about 45 minutes to an hour.
February 26, 2014 by Alec Caldwell
Sweeping changes came into effect in Ontario on January 1, 2104, and one of these changes means everyone working has until July 1, 2014 to complete a mandatory course and obtain their course completion certificate.
This includes all Ontario self-employed home renovation contractors, sole proprietors, sub trades, partners in a partnership and officers of a company.
The good news
The course is online and FREE. It does not just affect construction, it affects everyone in every industry sector in Ontario. To complete this course will take between 45 to 60 minutes.

Once finished you will receive a “Proof of Completion” certificate of training.
