Regulatory bodies are allowed to impose non-material additional requirements on a worker certified in another province or territory. Examples of non-material additional requirements include:

  • Paying application fees;
  • Obtaining insurance as may be appropriate;
  • Posting bonds;
  • Providing evidence of good character;
  • Providing evidence of good standing;
  • Providing a criminal record check;
  • Demonstrating language proficiency if this has not been previously assessed by the regulatory body in the province/territory of origin; and
  • Demonstrating knowledge of the measures maintained by the receiving province or territory applicable to the practice of the occupation (jurisprudence).

The Best Practice Checklist for Certifying Labour Mobility Applicants was developed as a guide to assist regulators in better understanding the requirements that can be asked from Labour Mobility Applicants.
