OBA since 1946..The Ontario Barber Association has and continues to advocate for Barbering here in the Province. Unfortunately Thousands of Professional Barbers have been displaced since the mid 90’s. Sadly our issues, needs and statistics continue to be misappropriated due to lack of proper classification. Industry maintains a one size fits all solution is best. As the only Barber Association in Ontario, we can support and endorse that this false. There needs to be an overhauling of the systemic status quo. Our efforts with OCOT promises for a better tomorrow; however until we establish concrete terms, our work continues.
Our current campaign is to establish enough Barber specific Data to validate and confirm our position moving forward. Education, Certification and accreditation through the Ontario Barber Association and our affiliates continues to be most important task to date. Our curriculum and syllabus have become a standard and staple in our industry. We are the only Professional Barber Association in Ontario. Much focus continues to be around getting all our members up to speed so everyone is in compliance prior to the transition. As we prepare to refresh standards which have been dormant and absent for almost 30 years, we turn to our affiliate’s to help us spread our message. Together we are pushing our diverse, eclectic, inclusive syllabus before the amalgamation.
