Start Working in Your Profession or Trade in Ontario
Are you new to Ontario? Are you also educated or trained for your profession or trade outside of the province and would like to work here in this same profession or trade? If so, there are several organizations that can assist you with the accreditation process. We have provided links to them through our recommended websites on Accreditation for Foreign Trained Professionals. In order to protect public safety and health, many professions or trades are regulated in Ontario. However, many are also unregulated.
If you are a chartered account, this is one of the regulated professions in Ontario. You are welcome to attend a free library workshop especially for Internationally Educated Accountants from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 27, 2016. Come to the Discussion Room (next to the Writers' Room) on the 3rd floor of the Toronto Reference Library.
You will be provided with information on access to the accounting profession in Ontario, as well as learn about qualification and experience requirements, advanced standing options for foreign trained accounting professionals, and career opportunities. It's presented as part of our series of programs with Library Settlement Partnerships, a partnership with Citizen and Immigration Canada, the YMCA and Toronto Public Library.
Engineers are also regulated, so if you want to work in Canada you will need to get a license to do so. You are welcome to attend a free library workshop on Getting a Professional Engineering Licence in Canada from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 24, 2016. Come to the Hinton Learning Theatre (just opposite the elevators) on the 3rd floor of the Toronto Reference Library.
Engineer Ramadoss Srinivasan will be discussing his experience and offering tips for obtaining a professional engineering license in Canada.
We hope that you will soon be able to apply your skills in a field related to your training. Communities across Ontario can use your talents.
