Ontario may lift language and license requirements for in-Canada immigrants

On October 21, 2021, the Government of Ontario announced intentions to ease internationally-trained immigrants to start careers in their profession. If passed, the proposal will lift the requirement for Canadian work experience when applying for licenced professions such as law, accounting, architecture, engineering, electrical, or plumbing. The province also may remove the language proficiency requirement to avoid duplication and address the labour shortage in the province, as well as help internationally-trained immigrants build better lives for themselves and their families.
