The Ontario Plumbing Inspectors Association Inc. (OPIA) is a non profit organization dedicated to protecting the health and well being of the Province of Ontario through safe plumbing.
Founded in 1920, our primary purpose is:
- to promote the improvement of plumbing standards to insure protection of the environment;
- promote the advancement of knowledge concerning the safe installation of plumbing; and
- to insure safe and adequate potable water systems in the Province of Ontario.
By becoming a member of the OPIA, you will gain access to our resources, including a quarterly bulletin concentrating on code interpretations and updates, as well as new products and methods entering the plumbing trade. You will also be able to access the expertise of our Code Technical Committee and see past questions that have been asked.
There is also an Annual Meeting and Education Seminar, periodic update courses, and monthly Branch meetings throughout Ontario. OPIA courses are designed for inspectors, plumbers, and apprentices. The OPIA also administers the Certified Plumbing System Inspector (C.P.S.I.) designation which has received Crown assent. This designation is a must for any person wanting to become a Plumbing Inspector in the Province of Ontario.
