Bailey says he’ll continue to oppose new fees for Ontario Trades College

Bailey Signs Trades Tax PledgeThe addition of what the government is calling a "membership fee" for tradespeople is nothing more than "another layer of government bureaucracy."

Says Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey, who on Wednesday signed a local "Stop the Trades Tax" pledge at a visit to General Maintenance Services in Sarnia.

Bailey pledged his support for opposition to the mandatory tax on trades workers being imposed by the Ontario College of Trades.

According to the government's College of Trades website, fees for journeyperson class will be $120 a year. Those in the Apprentices, Journeyperson candidates and Tradesperson classes will pay $60.
