College of Trades

The Ontario College of Trades (the College) is an industry-driven, professional regulatory body that protects the public by regulating and promoting the skilled trades.

One of the main responsibilities of the College is to ensure that individuals performing the skills of compulsory trades have the training and certification required to legally practise this trade in Ontario.


Since 1997, the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA) has delivered public safety services on behalf of the government of Ontario in four key sectors:

  • boilers and pressure vessels, and operating engineers;
  • elevating devices, amusement devices and ski lifts;
  • fuels; and,
  • upholstered and stuffed articles.
