Regulatory authorities will continue to recognize, certify, and license qualified workers from other provinces or territories under CFTA as was directed under the AIT. Regulatory authorities, through appropriate provincial ministries and the province’s labour mobility coordinator, will continue to notify other provinces and territories of any modifications to occupational standards for the occupations they regulate.
New West Partnership Trade Agreement
