The 2017 Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by members of the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) This agreement was initiated by a growing interest to create a safety designation that was nationally recognized. As a result of the agreement, the 2017 NCSO™ designation has been implemented by most members of the CFCSA throughout Canada, which have agreed to meet the same recognition requirements to ease the designation’s transferability between provinces and territories.
