Ontario College of Trades asks for industry feedback on Compliance and Enforcement Policy and AARO delivers

Diane.Freeman | March 3, 2017

AARO attended a meeting in London as well as the stakeholders meeting held at the Ontario College of Trades offices in Toronto.

The Compliance and Enforcement committee held regional consultations to hear input and feedback from the public, members, stakeholders, employers/employee and trades representatives.

As stakeholders AARO Vice President, Bob Ward and AARO board member Rick Callaghan attended an in person meeting with the committee members on February 23, 2017.

Discussions took place on how AARO can help the college as the Motive Power division has many regulatory responsibilities. Safety is paramount not only to vulnerable workers, other tradespeople but he public as well. The public has the right to know only trained and regulated people are working on their vehicles. This can be accomplished two ways, Compliance and Enforcement.

OCOT is willing to build relationships with stakeholders moving forward. We see the value in a working relationship with OCOT to better forge the future. Working toward a stronger trade will benefit all members.
