Minister introduces regulation into the Assembly

Ontario Assembly Building

Hon. Marie-France Lalonde MPP, Minister for Government and Consumer Services, announced the intention of the Ontario Government to follow through with regulation of the Home Inspection Profession  The announcement was made at 9 am this morning (Thursday 3rd November, 2016) and the Government Bill will be introduced to the Ontario Legislative Assembly in this afternoons session.

In previous iterations the concept of home Inspection regulation has had all party support, as it is seen by all politicians to providing tighter consumer protection around the real-estate sales process.

As a Stakeholder in the process, OntarioACHI will continue to work with the government and other stakeholders to ensure that in an effort to provide consumer protection, the difficulties experienced by home inspectors, who offer a wholly elective service to the public, are taken into account during the development of the regulations.
