Regulations and laws

Regulations and laws governing specific occupations are fixed by provincial and territorial governments around specific occupations.


If a trade is regulated in the province or territory you wish to settle in, contact the regulatory authority and/or apprenticeship office in that province or territory. When a trade is regulated, it means that you are required to be registered with a provincial or territorial regulatory authority to be authorized to practise that trade in that province or territory.

Definition

Regulated occupation

An occupation controlled by provincial and territorial (and sometimes federal) law, and governed by a regulatory body. About 20 per cent of jobs are in regulated occupations. These include regulated professions (e.g., nursing) and skilled trades (e.g., plumbing).

The law requires you to obtain a certificate, licence, or registration to use the reserved title for the occupation or obtain the exclusive right to practise the occupation. These regulations are intended to protect the health and safety of Canadians by ensuring that professionals meet the required standards of practice and competency.

There are two types of regulation:

  • Exclusive right to practise: A profession whose members are the only ones who can engage in the profession’s activities and use the title allowed them by law. The law defines, among other things, the professional activities strictly reserved for the members of each regulatory body.
  • Reserved title: A profession where only members of a regulatory body can make use of specific titles and abbreviations allowed them by law. Individuals who are not members of that regulatory body may practise the occupation, but they may not use any of these titles or allow others to believe (by using a similar title or abbreviation) they are members of a regulatory body.
Non-regulated occupation:  

A profession or trade for which there is no legal requirement or restriction on practice with regard to licences, certificates, or registration.

  • Voluntary certification, licence, or registration: The province or territory in which voluntary certification, licensing, or registration is available but not required by law..
  • • No certification, licence, or registration exists

3 Learn about credential assessment and recognition

It is strongly recommended that you gather all supporting documents and arrange for them to be sent while you are still in the country in which they were issued. It is very important to submit documents for assessment following the specific process required by the provincial/territorial regulatory authority and/or apprenticeship offices (see list below). This will greatly facilitate the assessment and recognition process.

Use the tabs below to find information on credential assessment and any mobility agreements in place.

Occupational assessment

Provincial/territorial regulatory authorities and/or apprenticeship offices are responsible for:
  • the assessment of your qualifications; and
  • issuing a Certificate of Qualification.
This will only be possible in cases where certification, licensing, or registration is either:
  • compulsory; or
  • voluntary.

Note that provincial and territorial authorities are generally not set up to issue certificates of qualification to individuals outside Canada. You may find relevant information before your arrival in Canada, but the process might require you to be physically present in order to complete it.

Immigration

Immigration to Canada

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is the department responsible for immigration to Canada.

For more detailed information on IRCC's requirements for immigration programs, visit their Web site.

Immigration to Quebec (Canada)

Under the Canada-Québec Accord on immigration, Quebec establishes its own immigration requirements and selects immigrants who will adapt to living in Quebec.

To obtain more information on Quebec's immigration programs and eligibility criteria, please consult the Web site of the ministère de l'Immigration, de la Diversité et de l'Inclusion du Québec (MIDI).

Additional information

Before undertaking an academic credential assessment for general purposes, it is extremely important to verify that the regulatory authority, or employer requires and will accept an assessment report issued by one of the six members of the Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada (ACESC).

If so, contact one of the academic credential assessment services below to obtain detailed information on:
  • application forms;
  • how to submit your international academic credentials for assessment;
  • timelines and fees for obtaining an academic credential assessment report.

An academic credential assessment for general purposes can take between several weeks to several months to obtain. It is strongly recommended that you begin this process prior to your arrival in Canada.

Although assessment services offer expert advice on how qualifications obtained outside Canada compare with those obtained in Canada, their assessments are advisory only. In Canada, they do not guarantee recognition of your qualifications for:
  • admission at an educational institution;
  • certification, licensing, or registration in an occupation; and/or
  • general employment.

All six members of the Alliance adhere to the Pan-Canadian Quality Assurance Framework for the Assessment of International Academic Credentials, and their assessments are used by many organizations. For more information on the Alliance, please visit its Web site, or use the information below to connect directly with its members.
