Licensing of Electrical Contractors and Master Electricians (Regulation 570/05)

The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services has approved amendments to two regulations under the Electricity Act, 1998, Part VIII.

The Ministry has amended the Licensing of Electrical Contractors and Master Electricians regulation (Regulation 570/05). The housekeeping amendments to the licensing regulation remove out-dated references, such as references to provisional licences which are no longer valid, correct reference errors in the regulation, clarify existing requirements, align with other regulators’ requirements, and align language in the regulation with the language found in the Electricity Act. These regulatory changes will come into effect on January 1, 2018. To view the updated regulation (incl. amendments), please visit the Government of Ontario’s elaws website.
