Why can't I find my occupation when searching on this site?
This site provides information about occupations that are governed by law in Alberta. If it does not contain an occupational description that is relevant to your work, your occupation is not regulated in Alberta. However, voluntary certification still may be of benefit to you.
If certification or registration is required by law, employers must hire only job applicants who have the required credential. If a credential is not required by law but is widely respected, employers may choose to hire only people who have it. To determine if this is common practice in your occupation, check the websites of Alberta employers in your field or industry. If they do not provide information about job opportunities and desired qualifications on their websites, send their human resources or personnel departments a brief description of the type of work you will be looking for in Alberta and ask about the qualifications required for that type of work.
