Part 1B: Scope of the Agreement

  • Issued: June 2006

This agreement applies to construction work performed by contractors and workers engaged in any of the trades, activities of trades or occupations that are listed in Appendices 1, 3 and 4 respectively.  It also applies to specialized construction work as defined in section 2.5.1, and to the transportation of aggregates under private and government contracts. 

An “Ontario worker” is a construction worker who lives in Ontario.  An Ontario worker who meets the requirements of this agreement may work anywhere in Quebec where employment is found and will be deemed to be a resident of the region in which the work is carried out for the entire duration of the employment. 

A “Quebec worker” is a construction worker who lives in Quebec.  A Quebec worker who meets the requirements of this agreement may work anywhere in Ontario.

Both Ontario and Quebec have certain requirements that apply universally to all construction contractors, whether resident or out-of-province; for example, requirements for licensing, or for registration with tax authorities.  Such requirements are explained in guidance material that supports this agreement but are not part of the agreement itself.
