Chainsaw Operation In Ontario

What do you need to operate a chainsaw in a professional setting on Ontario?
I have found so many different courses.

What certification do you have and what do you do?

You can be MCTU certified as a Cutter only. I know this as I am an instructor with a Ministry of Labour trainer number.
