Map Your Career
The Ontario Government has partnered with a number of regulatory associations to create career maps for internationally trained professionals. Career maps explain in detail every step of the registration process, including language requirements, industry trends, labour market conditions, credential assessment process, licensing fees and other important information.
The following professions are regulated in Ontario. To work in a regulated profession, you must be registered by the appropriate regulatory body. You may be able to work in a related field without a licence, but you should first check with the regulatory body to understand what restrictions exist. It is illegal to use the job title restricted to regulated professions without a licence or certificate from the appropriate regulatory body.
Please note that many professions in Ontario are not regulated by law, but do have voluntary professional bodies. Some of these organizations may offer certification courses and registration, which can help you find work.
