Bill or Act:
Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009
Summary of Decision:
Three Lieutenant Governor In Council Regulations were filed on December 18, 2012:
Ontario Regulation 429/12 Removal of Members from the Governing Structure and Delegation of Authority
Ontario Regulation 426/12 Revoking Various Regulations under the Trades Qualification and Apprenticeship Act
Ontario Regulation 427/12 Revoking Various Regulations under the Apprenticeship and Certification Act, 1998
One Minister's Regulation was filed on December 17, 2012:
Ontario Regulation 421/12 General
O.Reg 429/12 provide the criteria and process for the removal of the College's governing boards and delegate power of the college/Registrar to determine whether applicants for membership have the required trade qualifications and experience. The removal of College's governing boards provision will come into effect immediately. The delegation of authority provision will come into effect April 8, 2013.
O. Reg 426/12 and O. 427/12 revoke various LGIC regulations made under the TQAA and ACA. The TQAA and ACA will be repealed when the College begins registration of members on April 8, 2013.
A Minister's Regulation O. Reg 421/12 was made providing for exemptions for Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program and Pre-apprenticeship Program participants, employees of industrial plants, air brake and wheel and rim exemption for motive power trades, and Quebec-Ontario worker exemption. These exemptions are carried over from existing regulation under the TQAA and ACA. The Minister regulation also provides transitional provisions to deem existing apprenticeship clients as members of the College of Trades, deem trades named in a trade certificate or letter of permission, and transfer accrued certificate renewal revenue. The Minister's regulation will come into effect April 8, 2013 to coincide with the repeal of the TQAA and ACA.

Summary of Proposal:
The Ontario College of Trades (the College) will be implemented in 2013. In order for the College to be ready for business, the Government of Ontario needs to make regulations under the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009 (OCTAA). When the existing legislation - the Trades Qualification and Apprenticeship Act (TQAA) and the Apprenticeship and Certification Act, 1998 (ACA) and their regulations - are repealed, Ontario's apprenticeship and trade certification system will be governed completely under the OCTAA.
The majority of the regulation provisions are administrative and technical in nature and include the provisions that will be carried over from the TQAA and ACA. These items are necessary to ensure that the College can be operational in 2013.
