Ontario tightens home inspector qualifications

Ontario home inspectors will now have to have minimum qualifications to work in the trade starting in Fall 2012. Until recently, Alberta and British Columbia were the only provinces that required home inspectors to be licensed. The province will now work with the home inspection industry to establish minimum qualifications that would increase transparency, establish a minimum level of training, improve consistency in home inspections and enhance consumer protection.

To become a certified national home inspector, a candidate must write a qualification exam. Based on the results of this exam and a background review, the candidate will be advised of what, if any, further education is required. He or she will also be subject to a review of previously completed home inspections and supervised field work, and receive mentoring.
