I have a question concerning a small renovation I was asked to do for a friend in Burlington, ON.
I am a licensed contractor in Alberta and am visiting my sister in Ontario. I was asked to remove an existing bathtub and install a new one in the same place. Hook up a new tub/shower faucet in the existing place. To also remove the existing tile that is on the three wall surrounding the tub and retile it.
Do I need any certification or license of any kind to do this small job?
To work in Ontario you need to either have a business that is register in ontario or is registered federally. If your business is registered in Alberta only you probably cannot work in Ontario. I know Toronto you need to be licensed with the city. I am not certain of Burlington.
If there is any electrical work to be moved, added or relocated, you cannot do this work yourself, however if the homeowner claims some small electrical work on your behalf, they MUST apply for an inspection. Replacing plugs switches or lights is exempt, but adding a shower light or replacing a surface light with a recessed light, a permit must be applied for. www.esasafe.com
As you are not altering any of the plumbing lines you will not need a permit. You do not need a permit on existing fixture installs. As a fellow tradesperson, I strongly recommend using a RSE plumber or a licensed plumber in Ontario to do the plumbing for the fixtures. As this is for family I can't see any issues with you working out there.
