Working in Ontario

The geoscience profession is regulated in the Province of Ontario by the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario (APGO). The APGO is responsible for setting admission standards, and regulating the practice of professional geoscience in Ontario.

Tools and Information

The Ontario Government has partnered with the Association of Professional Geoscientists of Ontario to create a Career Map for internationally trained geoscientists. The Career Map explains in detail every step of the registration process and also includes information about the language requirements, industry trends, labour market conditions, the credential assessment process, licensing fees and other important information.

Getting Help

Bridge training programs: If you are qualified in your profession but new to Ontario, you may benefit from a bridging program. Bridging programs help qualified immigrants move more quickly into their professions without duplicating what they have already learned.
