Limitations, Restrictions, Conditions and Refusals
Pursuant to Article 706(4) of the Agreement on Internal Trade, the following excerpts outline how a regulatory authority may deny, totally or partially, certification to a worker from another province or territory in four specific circumstances:
Complaints, disciplinary or criminal proceedings
A regulatory authority may refuse to certify or may impose terms, conditions or restrictions on the practice of an incoming applicant if the applicant has been subject to complaints or disciplinary or criminal proceedings relating to his or her competency, conduct or character in a previous jurisdiction and the regulatory authority is of the opinion that such action is considered necessary to protect the public interest. Information regarding complaints or disciplinary or criminal proceedings can be requested from any jurisdiction, including those outside of Canada.
A regulatory authority may impose additional training, experience, examinations or assessments as a condition of certification where an applicant has not practiced the occupation within a specified period of time; such as an applicant who has not practiced the occupation at all within the last ten years. The extent of the additional requirement shall be no more burdensome than obligations imposed by the regulatory authority on its own workers. Where a difference exists between provinces/territories in the maximum time period specified, a province or territory can require out-of- province applicants to satisfy its own non-practice requirement as long as the time period is not longer than that which is imposed on its own workers.
Proficiency in one of Canada’s official languages
In order to ensure proper communication between a qualified worker and people involved in the practice of the occupation, and thus, ensure public protection, a regulatory authority may require a worker to demonstrate proficiency in English or French as warranted by the language required in the province or territory.
Limited, restricted or conditional certificates (licenses)
Where an applicant for certification (registration) is subject to a limitation, restriction or condition limiting the worker’s practice in the previous certifying province or territory, a regulatory authority will make reasonable effort to certify that worker with an equivalent practice limitation, restriction or condition. Where the regulatory authority has no existing provision that provides the ability to issue an equivalent conditional, limited or restricted certificate, it may refuse to certify the worker or offer a conditional certificate with requirements to upgrade to the standard of the receiving province or territory. In such instances, the regulatory authority is not required to create equivalent certification categories in order to be able to issue a conditional or restricted certificate. However, they may choose to do so.
