Renew a compulsory trade Certificate of Qualification

To practice a compulsory trade legally in Ontario, your Certificate of Qualification must be valid, and your information must appear on the Public Register. To keep your Certificate of Qualification from expiring, you will need to renew it. Skilled Trades Ontario will send a renewal notice 90 days before the certificate expiry date.

The cost to renew your certificate is $60 + HST.
