Lets truly understand what is going on.
First off there is a tug of war in our industry between associations in Ontario for power and control.
You will find that some associations use scare tactics that licensing in Ontario is immentent and that you have to be with a certain association if that happens as they will be the leaders if licensing does happen.
Fear does work in people, look at the long line ups for the H1N1 flu shots.
Before going any further I will post a comment made by Bill De Vries from our CanNACHI site as he was at one of the meetings set forth by an association who is trying to push for liscencing in Ontario he says:
"We do know that the Ontario goverenment is not pushing for licensing, as stated at the last symposioum. They were very clear on that fact being made and that if the association as a whole wanted to present ideas of licensing they would be happy to look them over. It was also stated that the Ontario government was not in a position to administer or control such at this time .
During our discussion they also agreed that no one association can or would have control over the licensing and it would have to be agreed upon by all representives of said associations that have a stake in the ontario home inspector industry.
We are a long way from having this imposed or even implemented, a discovery is at best being conducted by phpio.
By not showing up you are sending a message you agree with them or do not care.
If you want your voice heard send an email and add your disapproval to this.
If you want CanNACHI to voice your concerns by proxy send an email to the BOD@cannachi.org and we can use your email as part of our collective representation on your behalf to ensure that your voice is heard for and against this.
Whether it happens or not is not the problem, the problem is WHO and WHAT will be controling our interests as a whole.
This is really the question and you as a collective industry should be concerned about the outcome.
Hope this help, just looking to make sure were all heading the same direction and want the same outcome if and when lisencing happens"
So there… If it ever does happen in Ontario Liscensing, there are associations in our province that will fight that one association will not govern over another, as stated below:
“During our discussion they also agreed that no one association can or would have control over the licensing and it would have to be agreed upon by all representives of said associations that have a stake in the ontario home inspector industry.”
