It’s time..


After a 3 month lockdown, with thousands of our colleagues in other Provinces already back to work; Ontario Barbers are ready to return ASAP. We have a plan for safe reintegration and have recommendations at the ready. The Premier has suggested extending our lockdown until the end of June; this course of action is unacceptable. Thousands of our members and non members (regular barbers) have lost their livelihoods, lost their shops, lost their clients, have been forced to relocate, while many of our members are months behind in bills as they watch their debts skyrocket. 53% of Canadians live paycheque to paycheque and by our count, Barbers haven’t had the opportunity to receive a pay check in the last 3 months, now the Premier wants to extend it to 4 months? No thanks

P.S.A.

The Ontario Barber Association encourages Barbers throughout the province to cease and desist using Baby Powder or Talc in your Barber Shops. Throw away and do NOT use either Talc or Baby Powder on Clients from this day forward. “Inhaling talc, a naturally occurring mineral, can cause difficulty breathing, decreased lung function and pulmonary fibrosis, a scarring of the lungs”. “A number of class action lawsuits in the U.S. and Canada launched against Johnson & Johnson contend that longtime use of its talcum powder for feminine hygiene resulted in the development of the plaintiffs’ ovarian cancer. The cosmetics giant has denied its product, which has been on the market since 1894, causes the disease.

Ontario's Only Accredited Barber Program

We have recognized a demand in the industry for barber education, however, there’s no facility that has ever provided an n-depth program. We have been providing seminars, workshops, Platform Education, Salon Team sessions, fading & shaving training for decades. Our training gives students the opportunity to take part in a professionally altering experience. Not only do we address barbering techniques and styles we also delve into managing ALL hair types and various designs that current programs lack. Dry shaving, beards and moustaches, outlining, fades and fros are but a few sections that will be covered throughout our programming.
