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 (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

Opticians who qualified in Canada

Provincial regulatory authorities are responsible for:
  • assessing your qualifications; and
  • issuing a licence to practise.

  • For information on the documents that you must submit to obtain a licence to practise as an optician, contact the regulatory authority in the province you wish to work in.

Internationally trained opticians

  1. A specific member of the Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada (ACESC) is responsible for:
    • assessing your qualifications.

    • For information on the member of ACESC that can assess your qualifications and to find out what documents you must submit to complete the assessment process, contact the provincial regulatory authority, followed by the specified member of ACESC.

  2. As a second step, provincial regulatory authorities are responsible for:
    • issuing a licence to practise.

    • For information on the documents that you must submit to obtain a licence to practise as an optician, contact the regulatory authority in the province you wish to work in.

Other requirements

As part of the process for obtaining a licence to practise, candidates must also pass the National Optical Sciences Examinations or, in Quebec, l’Examen professionnel de l’Ordre des opticiens d'ordonnances du Québec. These examinations can only be taken if you are physically present in Canada.

Immigration

Immigration to Canada

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


The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) - Express Entry

The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) is an immigration program administered by IRCC. If you intend to immigrate to Canada under the FSWP and obtained your academic credentials outside Canada, one of the requirements is to obtain an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) for immigration purposes.1 For more detailed information on IRCC's requirements for this immigration program, visit their Web site.



1. A requirement for immigration purposes ONLY

It is important to note that obtaining an Educational Credential Assessment (ECA) is a requirement for immigration purposes only.

It is separate from the process of obtaining a licence to practise from the relevant regulatory authority.

Obtaining a licence to practise is not required to apply to IRCC's FSWP.

Additional information

Whether or not you obtain certification and/or licensure to pursue work in your occupation, if you later choose to pursue work in a non-regulated occupation, employers may request that you provide them with a formal assessment of your academic credentials.

Before undertaking an academic credential assessment for general purposes, it is extremely important to verify that the 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.
