Ontario HVAC Coalition dissolves

The board of directors of HVAC Coalition Inc. has decided to dissolve the organization as a separate, stand-alone corporation and pass on its watchdog function to the Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada’s (HRAI) Contractors Division.

The HVAC Coalition was an advocate for HVAC/R contractors on utility matters Ontario for almost 30 years. The organization defended HVAC contractors against inappropriate encroachments into industry by regulated utilities, with the goal of creating a level playing field for all competitors in the sector.

The HVAC Coalition struggled in recent years to secure industry support through funding, and according to the organization, eventually decided its mandate would be better pursued through the HRAI’s Contractors Division.

The HRAI Contractors Division agreed to take on responsibility for utility matters in Ontario and across Canada at its meeting in late May, and announced it will be establishing a utility action committee of volunteers in the near future.

The Contractors Division is asking members interested in taking part in an industry committee to contact Martin Luymes at [email protected] or at (800) 267-2231 ext. 235.
