With barbers and stylist who have enrolled and are registered with our association we’ve been able to cultivate and build our numbers and standards in a sector that has no place for Professional Barbers.  With our membership and our programs, workshops with High Schools, Colleges, Private institutions and other agencies and associations we continue to provide the foundation necessary to remain united as professional Barbers.

Career Opportunity

Due to the current recession, many Canadians are struggling to find employment after losing jobs or having to find additional work as their jobs have been hit hard by the tough economy. More and more of our students than ever before have found the “job” they thought was waiting for them doesn’t exist.   Through our programs countless  Barbers have found jobs, started their own business and enhanced their quality of life.  We are the Barbers of Ontario and continue to help Barbers make their dreams a reality.
