HOME WORKING IN NOVA SCOTIA Professional Accreditations & Licensing




Professional Accrediations and Licensing

You may have educational, professional or technical qualifications from your country of origin that may be acceptable for practice in Nova Scotia or may require upgrading to meet Canadian or Nova Scotian practising standards. There are a number of associations in Canada that can assess your skills and training to determine their Canadian equivalent, which is helpful when applying for schooling or work.

World Education Services - Canada (WES-Canada)
www.wes.org/ca

International Credential Evaluation Service - British Columbia (ICES)
www.bcit.ca/ices

International Qualifications Assessment Service - Alberta (IQAS)
www.learning.gov.ab.ca/iqas/iqas.asp

Canadian Information Centre for International Credentials

Regulatory Bodies/Professional Associations

In Nova Scotia, some professions are regulated by professional associations or by the provincial government. If you have been trained in a regulated profession outside of Canada (i.e., doctor, nurse, engineer) you should contact the regulatory body for your profession in Nova Scotia. It is a good idea to do this before you come to Canada as it will be easier for you to access employment documentation prior to your arrival.
