There is currently no provincial licensing required to become a home inspector in Ontario. However, home inspectors must follow laws related to the profession such as contracts and fair trade practices. PHII home inspector certification provides a competitive advantage.
PHII's online home inspection training and certification course meets all Ontario requirements for home inspectors in Canada. PHII is also accredited by the Canadian National Home Inspector Certification Council (NHICC) for credit towards its National Home Inspector (NHI) designation.
Home inspections in Canada follow the same national standards of practice as in the United States. PHII works with many regulatory organizations and is approved in provinces where home inspector licensing is required.
Home buyers, sellers and realtors want to make sure a home inspector has been properly trained and certified. PHII will give you a nationally recognized home inspector certification and the credentials you need to become a successful home inspector in Ontario. PHII students have also had great success passing regional and national exams, and you also receive free continuing education courses with your enrollment.
Note: As the home inspection industry grows, provinces are enacting or changing legislation requiring training, supervised inspections and examinations for home inspectors. Starting now may make you eligible for grandfathering provisions when new home inspector licensing laws or stricter regulations take effect in Ontario.
