Where can I find career maps for trades and regulated professions?

Some trades and professions are regulated in Ontario to protect public health and safety. That means that you must have a licence or certification to work in those fields.

To get a licence in a regulated profession, you must go through a specific registration process with the profession's regulatory body. Registration processes may involve many requirements and can be very complicated, time-consuming and expensive.

Below is a list of many trades and regulated professions with links to their corresponding "career map" and regulatory body or "regulator."

A "career map" is a guide that can help you understand the steps of the licencing registration process, as well as the language requirements, industry trends, labour market conditions, credential assessment process, licensing fees and other important information related to your original occupation. The career map for your occupation should help you determine which steps you need to take to work in your field. They are available on the Ontario Immigration website.

Note: This list replaces the former E-career maps on Settlement.Org, which are no longer available.
