“Skilled trades workers are vital to Ontario’s future growth and prosperity, so it is more important than ever to break the stigma associated with these jobs, simplify the system and encourage employer participation. It is also important to identify and remove barriers for those who do not often consider the trades, such as women and Indigenous peoples, to encourage their participation in apprenticeship training. This is why the government is investing an additional $114.4 million over three years in its Skilled Trades Strategy.”

“The Building Opportunities in the Skilled Trades Act, 2021 is enacted. The Act sets out provisions regarding the practice of trades in Ontario and apprenticeship training and certification, and provides for the continuation of the Ontario College of Trades under the name Skilled Trades Ontario (“the Corporation”).”
