What you need to know prior to your arrival in Alberta

Newcomers are often surprised to learn that their qualifications and years of experience in another country are not automatically recognized in Canada or Alberta. In fact, many professionals will have to repeat part of their training and some will have to work in a transitional job before entering the profession. It is therefore better to face this reality and prepare accordingly before arriving in Alberta.

The following websites present Alberta’s regulatory bodies and provide more information on this topic.
