“Labour Mobility” refers to the ability of certified workers to practice their regulated occupation, throughout Canada, wherever job opportunities exist. Ensuring that the qualifications of certified workers are recognized when they move to another province or territory benefits both workers and employers alike. Certified workers have a wider range of employment opportunities and employers can access a broader selection of candidates.
1. What is Labour Mobility under the Canadian Free Trade Agreement and what can it do for me?
Are you certified by a provincial or territorial regulatory body to work in your occupation? Is your certification still valid? The Labour Mobility provisions from the Canadian Free Trade Agreement allow you to be recognized as qualified to work in any province or territory, for the occupation you are certified in without having to go through additional significant training, work experience, examination or assessment, unless an exception has been posted.
