A full day ahead for CIPH Ontario Region members

January 8, 2015 | By HPAC Magazine

Busy agenda includes OCOT presentation, former Toronto mayor on the Pan Am Games, and lessons in time management.

A forum led by the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) on January 15, 2015 (2:30-3:30 p.m.) at the Mississauga Convention Centre in Mississauga, ON, is directed to those who may be impacted by The Ontario College of Trades (OCOT). The focus is on OCOT’s powers of enforcement over the skilled trades and what liabilities and responsibilities fall on to the compulsory trades. OCOT membership is mandatory for 150,000 professionals who work in the 22 trades in which certification is compulsory, including plumbers, residential air conditioning systems mechanics, refrigeration and air conditioning systems mechanics, sprinkler and fire protection installers and sheet metal workers. The public uses OCOT as a place to turn to complain about service, search for a local tradesperson, or to find out whether a contractor has ever been disciplined for an infraction.

This event follows the Ontario Region Business Meeting at the same location. Guest speaker David Miller will discuss Toronto’s winning bid for the Pan Am Games and the preparations for that event. CIPH Ontario Region’s Young Executive Society (YES) workshop on time management, through Dale Carnegie Business Group, opens the day.
