Ontario College of Trades
Regulation Delegates Powers to the Appointments Council
The Ontario government has approved a regulation to permit the College of Trades Appointments Council to have more time to recruit a Registrar for the College, which they have been working on for 10 months.
Ontario regulation 380/11 under the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009 gives the College of Trades Appointments Council until November 9, 2011 to complete its work.
This will ensure there is enough time for a phased hand over of responsibilities to the new Board of Governors. The College of Trades Appointments Council is made up of individuals who represent a wide cross-section of the people who are involved with apprenticeships and apprenticeship training.
Ontario is the first province to create an industry-led regulatory body to shape the future of its apprenticeship training system.
