Get your credentials assessed

To have your qualifications recognized in order to work in Canada, the first step is to find out which organization is responsible for assessing your qualifications and what documents are required.

As a general rule, if your chosen occupation is:
  • regulated, recognition of your qualifications will be determined by the appropriate provincial or territorial regulatory authority;
  • non-regulated, recognition is normally at the discretion of the employer.
