The Ontario College of Trades is a regulatory college for the apprenticeship and skilled trades system.
The College will encourage more people to work in the trades and help the system better serve employers, skilled tradespeople, apprentices and consumers.

To prepare for this transfer, the government will share necessary information with the College, including:
