What you need to know about BCIN Designer insurance in Ontario
Change happens. In 2016, legislation was passed in Ontario to introduce a new designation for designers in the construction industry. Commonly known as BCIN (which stands for Building Code Identification Number). At the same time, provincial wide standards and examinations were established. To help people prepare for code examinations, some Ontario colleges like George Brown College began offering building code courses.
Since then, the awareness about the important differences between BCIN firms, professionals, architects and architectural firms has been growing. When securing insurance, BCIN designers and BCIN firms should select a business insurance brokerage with the experience to appreciate the differences and secure specialized products.
