If you are a certified worker, you can be recognized as qualified in any other province or territory throughout Canada, meaning you can be certified to work wherever opportunities exist.
The Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) is an agreement signed by the federal, provincial and territorial governments. It has been put in place to remove barriers and make the movements of goods, services, investment and workers between provinces and territories easier.
Individuals who hold a certificate or license in a province or territory can be recognized to practice their occupation elsewhere in Canada. Certification will be recognized by all other provinces and territories that issue a similar certificate or license, without requiring significant additional training, experience, examination or assessment of qualifications, unless an exception has been posted.
Because of AIT, it is now easier than ever to obtain recognition across Canada for your professional qualifications and to benefit from work opportunities available outside of your current province or territory.
