Director's Amendments to the OESC

NOTIFICATION:  Official Director's Order making amendments to the Ontario Electrical Safety Code 2012 25th Edition regarding the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act

Beginning April 8th, 2013, the Trades Qualifications and Apprentice Act (TQAA) and the Apprenticeship Certification Act (ACA) will be repealed as certain sections of the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act (OCTAA) come into force.

Ontario's apprenticeship and trade certification system will be governed completely under this new Act.  

The Ontario Electrical Safety Code (OESC) makes several references to the TQAA and as such, consequential amendments were made to the OESC to ensure alignment between the OESC and the OCTAA.   

These changes will be effective on April 8, 2013.

For complete details of the consequential amendments to the OESC, please refer to the following Director’s Order:
