                                                         INDUSTRY STANDARDS:

In fact, there are no mandated industry standards, currently.  Hopefully, however, that will soon change. Please see Cam's August 15, 2012 Toronto Sun exclusive to Sun Media for information on the present state of certification for home inspectors.  

That article was updated on Feb. 28, 2013 and published in the Kingston Whig and, again, on July 25, 2013, also in the Kingston Whig.

In 2016, Cam wrote an open letter to MPP, David Orazietti, Minister of Government and Consumer Services, which appeared in the Kingston Whig. You can read it here. To read Minister Orazietti's response and letter of appreciation, please click here.

As a result of Cam's effort, in September of 2016, at her request, Cam travelled to Queens Park to meet with the new Minister of Consumer and Government Services, Marie-France Lalonde, for a meeting on the proposed home inspection legislation. See letter here.

On November 3, 2016, Cam was in attendance for the announcement as Minister Lalonde introduced legislation to license home inspectors in Ontario. This legislation, which is expected to be functional by early 2019, will require every home inspector in Ontario to be licensed. This is the culmination of over 15 years of effort by a group of dedicated individuals, Cam among them, to bring attention to this important legislation to protect every Ontario Home buyer.


It's obvious how much you care about your clients and what a great work ethic you have.  If only all trades people could be like you!  I will definitely be recommending you to my friends.
