They have added it to the code book but it isn't regulated to only electricians.
We are an electrical contractor in Ontario thus why I know this.
They could say the same thing for fiber as it is also in the code book
*Class2 wiring is section 16 and appendix B
*Fiber is section 56
*Referencing Ontario Electrical Code Book 2018
From the Code book: Appendix B Rule 16-000 1)e)
Class 2 power and data communication circuits are based on the concept known as PoE introduced by the IEEE 802.3 series of standards. These IEEE Standards originally limited the delivered power to 15.4W. However, the limit was later increased to 25.5W, and then two additional power types were introduced: up to 55W (type 3) and up to 100W (Type 4). Type 3 and Type 4 power levels are incompatible with the Rules applicable to communication equipment given in section 60 of this Code but are compatible with the existing requirements for Class 2 circuits in Section 16.
Therefore PoE is still considered Class 2 wiring and does not require an electrical ticket to install
