Summary of Proposal:
On December 15, 2009, the Ontario Labour Mobility Act, 2009 (OLMA), which implements Ontario's labour mobility commitments under Chapter 7 of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT), came into force. The AIT is a pan-Canadian internal trade agreement signed by all provinces and territories with the exception of Nunavut. Under the AIT, Ontario is obligated to ensure that an individual certified in an occupation by a regulatory authority in another province or territory is, subject to certain limited exceptions, entitled to be certified in the same occupation in Ontario without any requirement to complete any additional material training, experience, examinations or assessments.
Under OLMA, the Ministers responsible for regulatory authorities established by public Acts serve as monitors responsible for ensuring that the authority complies with OLMA. For non-governmental regulatory authorities operating under private Acts, monitors must be prescribed through regulation. Monitors for eleven regulatory authorities operating under private Acts were prescribed in December 2010 through O. Reg 505/10. This regulation amends O. Reg. 505/10 to prescribe Ministerial monitors for the remaining thirteen non-governmental regulatory authorities established by private Acts. Assignments made through the original regulation are unchanged.
