On June 14, 2013 Tarion’s Board of Directors approved launching a public consultation process, in order to receive feedback on Enhanced Vendor and Builder Education Requirements: Implementation Options.
Tarion’s Builder Education Taskforce was originally asked to develop a vision for a builder education program in Ontario. It was determined that Tarion’s mandate to inform and educate new home builders should be addressed by enhancing registration requirements for new applicants and introducing new renewal requirements for existing registrants.
Tarion conducted an initial consultation on this concept in 2012. This Builder Education Taskforce has now prepared this detailed discussion paper based on the feedback received from all of Tarion’s stakeholder groups. This paper fully outlines the proposed enhanced education requirements and how Tarion intends to implement the policy.
