Contractors, wholesalers, manufacturers and industry trade press from across Ontario shared their insights, concerns and ideas with HRAI during three consultation sessions on December 16.

The consultation sessions focused on a variety of questions of importance to the HVACR industry concerning approaches to skilled trades and apprenticeship.  Specifically,

  • Governance of the skilled trades,
  • Enforcement and compliance,
  • Portable skill sets, and
  • Fee setting.

While the input from members is being reviewing and analyzed, one thing that is immediately clear is that members have more to say about these critical issues.  Accordingly, in 2021, HRAI will set up additional opportunities to discuss these issues in more depth.  Stay tuned for details regarding the date, time and format of the next consultation sessions.

To the approximately 100 members who registered and shared their thoughts, thank you for taking the time to contribute to these discussions.

Look for information about dates and times for additional consultation in the near future.
