Labour Mobility refers to the ability of certified workers to practice their occupation, throughout Canada, wherever opportunities to work in that occupation exist. Ensuring that the qualifications of certified workers are recognized when they move to another province or territory benefits both workers and employers alike. Workers have a wider range of employment opportunities and employers can access a broader selection of candidates.
Labour Mobility provisions of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement state that certified workers will be recognized as qualified to work in the same occupation by a regulatory body in another province or territory, without having to go through additional significant training, work experience, examination or assessment, unless an exception has been posted.
