The Ontario Labour Mobility Act, 2009 requires certifying/regulatory bodies to ensure that their certification practices are consistent with the principle of full labour mobility. OACETT recognizes certified members from and has transferability arrangements with all other Canadian jurisdictions. If you are a certified member transferring to Ontario, you will be awarded the title used here in Ontario. If you are transferring from Ontario, the new province will assign you the title in use in that province.
Note: If you did not complete a Professional Practice Exam as part of the certification process in your province of certification, you will be assigned the PPE to complete within six months or two exam sessions upon transferring to Ontario.
To apply for a transfer, complete this form and send to the association you are transferring to. Note that you may retain an out-of-province membership with Ontario at a reduced membership fee. Click here for the current rate.
