Professional Licensing and Regulatory Bodies
In Canada, there are dozens of professions that are regulated, meaning that by law, a license is required to practise that profession.
To become a professional of a regulated occupation, people are required to meet high academic qualifications, usually pass an exam administered or approved by the regulatory body, and have their professional conduct monitored once in the occupation. People can also be removed from an occupation if their professional conduct fails to meet the profession’s standards. If removed, it is illegal for them to continue practising that profession and consequences for illegal practise can range from significant fines to serving jail time.
