Last year, the Ontario College of Trades made it mandatory that anyone who installs, services, or performs fire alarm and/or sprinkler systems must be certified as a member.
Formerly considered a voluntary trade, the College deemed that the installation of sprinkler and fire protection systems must be a compulsory one, where registration as an apprentice or journeyperson candidate, or certification as a journeyperson, is mandatory.
The decision has mostly positive benefits for property owners in Ontario, as it ensures that those who install the various forms of fire alarm and protection systems possess the necessary skills to do so.
