The Ministry of the Environment requires, that anyone engaging in water well drilling, well digging, pump installations, or doing well upgrades hold the proper license to perform the work.

A contractor's license is required to perform any work pertaining to wells or pump work in the well. A contractor's license assures the customer that the contractor is adequately insured.

To then drill a well a driller requires a technician's Class I license.

To install a pump requires a Class 4 technicians license.

Technicians are required to take upgrading courses to keep their license current.

Don't hesitate to ask for your contractor's licence number whether it be to drill a well, or to just do pump service work.
