Fire Services Memorandum of Understanding signed by Fire Marshal Bernard Moyle

Office of the Fire Marshal Ontario
Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs


The partnership between Ryerson University, the Office of the (Ontario) Fire Marshal (OFM) and the Ontario Association of Fire Chiefs (OAFC) was formalised with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that, among other things, provided recognition, in the form of a Prior Learning Assessment, of Diplomas conferred by the Ontario Fire College. Bernard Moyle, who retired as Fire Marshal on 30 November 2006, was tremendously supportive of this partnership and was very pleased to sign the MOU on 21 November 2006.
