Over 60 members from each organization attended an industry panel at the Western Development Museum on March 14, 2019.This unique forum provided an opportunity to exchange information in a manner to promote regulatory harmony, continue to encourage collaboration amongst stakeholders and contribute to the progress of our works as an industry while strengthening industry and government partnerships to further ensure consumer health and safety.


Moderated by CIPH President & GM Ralph Suppa the panelists consisted of William Hawkins, Executive Director, Building Standards and Licensing Branch, Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Relations ; Justin Yawney, MCA S board director and President of Yorkton Plumbing & Heating; Nahanni Dearing, Managing Partner Dynamic Agencies, and Jim Filteau, Gas Inspector, SaskPower.



As an outcome from the session CIPH SK and MCA S in collaboration with the government of Saskatchewan will further explore meaningful hydronics inspections to the latest version of CSA B214; how hydronics can be a separate and specialized trade in Saskatchewan;  how CIPH’s Canadian Hydronics Council certification training program through NAIT can be provided in the province; and revisit general contractor qualifications.
