Inspectors will be reviewing to ensure
that any work performed that falls to
restricted areas requiring licensed trades
personnel has, in fact, been done by
a licensed tradesperson and that the
licences are up to date and current.
All operators are encouraged to
consider implementing (if not already in
place) a standard operating procedure
where regular review is done to ensure
tradespeople have met their obligations
to remain licensed under the Ontario
College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act.
Furthermore, operators are reminded
to ensure that employees performing
restricted work must either be licensed
or an "apprentice" under the act.
Non-compliance could result in
hefty fines and penalties for both the
tradesperson and the company where
they are employed.
As OCOT continues to ensure
compliance with the act, operators are
encouraged to prepare accordingly by
ensuring all restricted work is being
conducted by licensed trade personnel
and that licences are kept up to date.

service delivered in Quebec with a
Category 1 bus to provide chartered
services from September 1 to October 31
of each year for the transportation
of persons if using buses of the
same category, where the following
conditions are met:
* The tourists transported have passed
through or will pass through, at the
end of their trip to Québec, either one
of Montréal's international airports,
Jean-Lesage International Airport,
the port of Montréal, or the port of
Québec; and
* The driver has in his possession a
copy of the charter contract.
Category 1 is described as a bus built
for long-distance public transport and
equipped with a baggage compartment,
an interior baggage rack, seats with
adjustable backs, an air-conditioning

system and a toilet (see Bus
Transportation Regulation, section 2).
The regulation also eliminates the
obligation to register in Quebec a
vehicle from outside of the province and
the requirement to have a rental permit
from the Commission des transports
du Québec, which encourages the
short-term rental of additional buses
from outside Quebec.
September 1 through October 31 of
each year is the only time this exception
is allowed.
There are a number of conditions
that need to be respected and adhered
to. For example, the bus must have
a valid certificate of registration
issued by another administrative
authority and it must be insured in
accordance with sections 84 and 87.1
of the Automobile Insurance Act.
The bus shall be equipped with a
certificate of mechanical inspection
in accordance to section 203 of
the regulation respecting safety
standards for road vehicles.
