The Labour Mobility Chapter of the CFTA does not view grandparented workers who hold current certification differently from other certified workers covered by the Chapter.

Since Labour Mobility provisions under the CFTA are based on a certificate to certificate recognition principle, grandparented workers must be granted a full license by the receiving jurisdiction unless an exception to Labour Mobility is posted. In such cases, an exception to Labour Mobility is open to challenge. Any intention to grandparent should be included in a notification to change occupational standards.
