On April 1, 2009, changes to the Labour Mobility Chapter of the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT) came into effect. They provide for full labour mobility between provinces for licensed practitioners. In order to comply with the new labour mobility requirements, SCoP has adjusted its licensing criteria for out of province applicants who are licensed or registered to practice in another jurisdiction. The Saskatchewan Government has amended the Paramedics Act to comply with the AIT. For Details Click Here.
Canadian Paramedic Regulators have agreed to use four occupational groupings for purposes of assessing incoming practitioners for licensing. the Saskatchewan designations are listed in the following chart under the occupational grouping for which they have the best fit (meaning that they meet all the competencies required of that grouping).
Some paramedics transferring to Saskatchewan will be issued a Restricted Licence until they make up a few critical training deficiencies. The following chart identifies the requirements for practitioners transferring from each province. Approved Exemptions - Provincial Comparison to Saskatchewan (pdf)
