Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

100% Low wages is one of the biggest deterrents to this job. Compared to other enforcement ministries or Bylaw or Metro-Lynx, Go specials. They all earn substantially more than a MTO officer.

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

Your guess is as good as mine. They have talked about doing a large hire for the last two years but haven't managed to put one together. Keep watching.

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

The initial Basic Training is 12 weeks followed by 3 weeks for CVSA certification. Typically after the 12 weeks training you would return to your home location and return at a later date for the extra 3 weeks. An example of that would be basic training in the spring, spend the summer at your work l...

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

As a TEO, I'm going to step in here. MTO Enforcement IS IN A STATE OF CRISIS. When 150+ out of 160 some officers sign a province wide group grievance regarding unsafe working conditions and poisoned work environment, I'd have to say WE ARE IN CRISIS. It's a great job but if we don't continue to push...

Re: MTO (Ontario) officers - provincewide postings

Unfortunately, you are not going to get a clear answer. Read the above article to see the MTO is also in crisis and Officers are scared to speak up. Personal, stay away from the MTO.

Shoot me a PM and I'll share contact info.
Merry Christmas all. :D
