TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2012 /CNW/ -The Ontario College of Trades is committed to being open and transparent about critical decisions that affect its stakeholders and future members.
Through the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009 and an independent review process, those in the skilled trades are being given ownership of those decisions.
Following a call for Written Submissions and public Oral Hearings, independent Review Panels have recently recommended apprentice to journeyperson ratio changes for two of the four trades that were under review.
The Ontario College of Trades, Board of Governors will make regulations implementing these recommended ratio changes, following a 45-day posting on the College website. There will be no changes until the necessary regulation is put in place in 2013.
The College will continue to turn to its stakeholders and future members on numerous occasions to get their feedback and hear their voices on important issues.
Copies of the reports by the Review Panels and a summary of Ratio Review Decisions are available online at: http://www.collegeoftrades.ca/category/ratio-reviews
