The annual membership fees are broken down as follows: 

Apprenticeship Class – $60
Journeyperson Candidates Class – $60
Tradespersons Class – $60
Journeypersons Class – $120

All apprentices and tradesperons and journeypersons working in compulsory trades will be required to pay annual fees to the OCOT. The college is expected to open its doors in the spring of 2013.

The OCOT have also set up the following transactional fees:

Certificate of Qualification Examination – $150
Reinstatement (due to non-payment) – $60/$120 (same as membership class fee)
