May 12, 2016 – According to a statement from Ontario College of Trades Registrar & CEO, David Tsubouchi, “As of May 6, 2016, the Government of Ontario decided that the regulatory and administrative oversight of [OCoT] will be transferred from the Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities to the Ministry of Labour.”
Apparently, a letter sent to OCoT stakeholders from the MoL indicates:
this change will not have an impact on the day-to-day operations of the college. The college will be undertaking its functions on a business-as-usual basis with no impact on college staff or members, and will continue to serve its members and protect the public interest through our enforcement activities.
“We look forward to working with the Ministry of Labour as we fulfil our mandate by regulating and promoting the skilled trades,” concludes the statement.
