Independent Review Launched – Tony Dean Appointed

The Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, the Honourable Reza Moridi has appointed Tony Dean as Reviewer to conduct an independent technical review that will focus on processes related to determining scopes of practice and trade classification reviews.

Mr Dean will consult with stakeholders and receive support from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and universities and the College of Trades, but will function independently of both.  The appointment begun last month (October 2014) and will continue for one calendar year.  Mr Dean will then deliver his report to the College of Trades and the ministry.  The College will have the opportunity to review his findings and implement key recommendations.


“It is a privilege to be asked to take on this important independent review. I am looking forward to hearing from and talking to the organizations and individuals who have ideas and proposals on the areas encompassed by my terms of reference. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of the College of Trades’ mandate and its role in strengthening the apprenticeship system and skilled trades in Ontario.”
