Regulatory Proposal Issued Regarding School Bus Driver Requirements
Date: November 23, 2012
On November 22, 2012, the Ontario government (Ministry of Education) issued a regulatory proposal regarding the requirement that school bus drivers have a clear criminal record check report in order to qualify for and hold the requisite driver’s licence.
That requirement is currently found in a regulation under the Highway Traffic Act. Under this proposal, the requirement will be transferred to O. Reg. 521/01, Collection of Personal Information, under the Education Act.
Any comments on this proposal are due by January 2, 2013.
