Labour Mobility

“Labour Mobility” refers to the ability of certified workers to practice their regulated occupation, throughout Canada, wherever opportunities to work in that occupation exist.  

Labour mobility ensures that the qualifications of certified workers are recognized when they move to another province or territory to the benefit of both workers and employers.  Workers have a wider range of employment opportunities and employers have a broader selection of candidates.

The Labour Mobility Coordinating Group supports the coordination, implementation and monitoring of the Labour Mobility Chapter of the Agreement on Internal Trade throughout Canada.  Detailed information regarding the process and regulation of Labour Mobility can be found on their website www.workersmobility.ca
