"Is your plumber certified? Check with College of Trades!" – Toronto Star spouts the propagandaCanadian Contractor Business
The PR folks who handle the account for the Ontario College of Trades are probably going to be busy telling the public that without OCOT certification you are a bum. In so many words.
If you are a plumber in Ontario who has just got one of those fat invoices for $120 in the mail from the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT), and you wonder what on earth you’re going to get back for your money (other than if you don’t pay it, they’ll withhold your license), check out propaganda like this from the Toronto Star on the weekend.
The PR folks at Argyle Communications (last time we received their stuff) who represent the Ontario College of Trades, either seeded this story, or are loving it anyway.
You won’t stay licensed if you don’t pay the OCOT their annual fee.
And the Toronto Star is going to make sure the public knows it.
