Each province and territory has a Labour Mobility Coordinator (LMC) whose job is to promote the implementation and ongoing adherence to Labour Mobility provisions under the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA).  This can involve interacting with regulatory bodies to make sure that certified workers have their certification recognized. Since the implementation of Labour Mobility under the CFTA, Labour Mobility Coordinators have been working with regulatory bodies to remove mobility barriers for certified workers moving to another Canadian province/territory.

If you have questions about Labour Mobility under the CFTA or concerns about having your certification recognized by a regulatory body in another province or territory, you should contact your Labour Mobility Coordinator.

LMCs from all provinces and territories are members of the Labour Mobility Working Group (LMWG), which was established by the Forum of Labour Market Ministers (FLMM) to support the coordination, implementation and monitoring of Labour Mobility under the CFTA and to develop consistent interpretation and help ensure proper application of its provisions across the country.

The LMCs are responsible for:

  • addressing questions and Labour Mobility concerns from certified workers;
  • interacting with regulatory authorities and officials in other government ministries to support the recognition of out-of-province/territory certified workers; and
  • assisting with the processes for reconciliation of occupational standards to the extent possible and where practical.
