Did you know that there is an interprovincial agreement to facilitate access to the construction sector in both provinces?
If you are awarded a contract in Ontario, there are a few steps you need to take to be compliant. Fortunately, the process is fairly simple and quick enough for a Quebec company to go to work in Ontario. However, it is important to make sure you do it right to avoid problems.
Here is a summary of the steps to work in Ontario :
– Open a file with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB)
– Opening a file at the Ministry of Government Services (MGS)
– Opening a file at the Ministère du Revenu en Ontario
If you are an electrician, pipe fitter, work on heavy equipment or handle gasoline, other steps may be necessary.
In addition, residential contractors must register with Tarion Warranty Corporation.
For more information, contact APECQ who will be pleased to assist you in this process.
