How Can You Practice Your Profession In Canada?
Many people have written to us asking how they can practice their profession in Canada and how to revalidate their studies in Canada.
In Canada there are areas considered to be regulated and others considered to be unregulated. Most trades and technical careers (eg hairstylist or mechanic) are not highly regulated, which means that most people can work in their area without problems.
However, most of the professions related to health, primary/secondary education, architecture and law are classified as highly regulated, which means that once in Canada, the candidate will have to contact the regulatory agency. of your profession, in order to determine what is required to be able to legally practice your profession in Canada.
