Transfers from other U.B.C. Locals into Local 18
Local 18 takes pride in having all of our members either registered apprentices with the College of Trades and the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development, and our journeypersons hold a valid Certificate of Qualification or Red Seal in their respective trade. Ontario does not recognize out-of-province apprenticeship programs, and therefore, Local 18 is required to assess the experience of each member that is wishing to transfer in.
Please note that scaffolding is not a separately recognized trade within Ontario, and Local 18 would require those applicants to comply with the standards and register as an apprentice in the recognized appropriate trade in Ontario.
Local 18 Hamilton-Niagara prefers that any member wishing to transfer into our Local maintain a permanent residence and mailing address within the local work jurisdictional boundaries.
Should you have any questions with regards to the transfer process, please contact either the Hamilton or Niagara office. We are always here and happy to help you with your questions.
