Rules to obtain a competence card from the province of Quebec
Plumbers and Steamfitters
If you are a member residing in Ontario and your licence is valid in Ontario, if you have your Basic Fall Protection, WHMIS, Basic Health and Safety courses of Ontario or your Health and Safety course from the province of Quebec, it’s free. If you don’t have those courses, it’s $10.00. You will have to show proof of residence (driver’s licence) and your licence of the Ministry of Ontario.
If you are a resident of Quebec with a valid licence of Ontario and you have your Basic Fall Protection, WHMIS, Basic Health and Safety courses of Ontario or your Health and Safety course from the province of Quebec, it’s $100.00. If you don’t have those courses, it’s $10.00 more. You will have to show proof of residence (driver’s licence) and your licence from the Ministry of Ontario.
However, it is possible to avoid this fee of $ 100.00; whether it is to get your card from the CCQ for the first time or to renew it; by presenting proof that you worked as a plumber or pipefitter in Ontario. To do so you will need to present to the C.C.Q. the following documents:
  • T4 from previous years 
  • A letter from your Employer indicating the number of hours worked in your trade OR a letter from Local 71, signed by the Business Manager, which confirms the number of hours you have worked in the previous years.

If not, it is $10.00 more. You will have to show proof of residence (driver’s licence) and a letter from the Union of 750 hours of work along with a T4.
If you are a resident of Quebec and want to renew your CCQ card, you will need to present your T4 from previous years to prove that you have worked at least 320 hours per year after the expiration date of your license and a letter from your Employer or from Local 71 confirming that you have worked as a welder.
