Ontario Regulation 215/01 Section 20 says a G1 and G2 can,

Quote
(2)  A person who is certified to carry out the functions described in subsection (1), may also do the following:

3.Disconnect and reconnect water piping in order to exchange, service or install an approved appliance and carry out the replacement of water pipe necessary to complete the reconnection or installation of controls, control systems, components and accessories that are essential to the operation of the appliance, but the person shall not perform any additional plumbing unless he or she is the holder of a certificate of qualification in the trade of plumber or steamfitter, that is not suspended and that is issued under the Ontario College of Trades and Apprenticeship Act, 2009.
