"These programs assess international medical graduates (IMGs) in a clinical environment in the province concerned," explains Fleur-Ange Lefebvre, Executive Director and CEO of the Federation of Medical Regulatory Authorities of Canada (FMRAC). "It is important that these physicians follow a practical observation here in Canada before they can be considered for a licence. Medicine is a very active profession and medical regulators (ASRs) must be able to rely on a reasonable and comprehensive process to fulfill their duty to protect the public and patients. Through the Re-Entry program, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care provides funding annually to physicians currently practicing in Canada to re-enter postgraduate medical education. Please see the Reintegration Program page for more information, including admission criteria and the application form. However, Canada`s labour mobility agreements can facilitate the registration of physicians already licensed in another Canadian province or territory. The AIT and Ontario`s Labour Mobility Act, 2009 require Ontario to register regulated professions, including physicians from other parts of Canada. When an applicant is from another Canadian jurisdiction where registration certificates similar to those in Ontario are present, the CPSO must register the applicant in order to practice without material or additional training. The Canadian Free Trade Agreement is an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian ministers, which entered into force on July 1, 2017. Its objective is to remove and remove as much as possible barriers to the free movement of people, goods, services and investment within Canada and to create an open, efficient and stable internal market. As a first step, the Commission agreed in February 2010 to implement without delay fmrac`s full licensing requirements, defined as the Canadian standard in the FMRAC agreement. The Canadian standard requires new applicants to have the following qualifications to qualify for a full (unlimited) licence to practice medicine: The New West Partnership Trade Agreement (NWPTA) is an agreement between Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan, which allows medical officers licensed in one province to be registered in the other, if they meet the registration requirements of that jurisdiction. The Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) (formerly the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT)) is an agreement between the federal, provincial and territorial governments of Canada.

One of their objectives is to remove barriers to labour mobility within Canada. The CFTA allows physicians who have a license to independent practice in another Canadian province or territory to apply as a regulated member as a full-fledged training course, without having to undergo significant additional education, examination or assessment. The applicant must continue to apply for registration in Manitoba and may not practise in Manitoba with a registration or licence issued by another jurisdiction. The FMRAC agreement addresses the access to practice requirements for a full license as well as a provisional or limited authorization. "Chapter Seven (Labour Mobility) of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (formerly the Agreement on Internal Trade) states that most physicians admitted to one jurisdiction are eligible for admission to another Canadian province or territory, without undergoing further testing," adds Lefebvre. "It is therefore important that the different PRA programmes follow the same standards and rigour; This is the best way to ensure that all jurisdictions can trust each other`s assessment process. Short-term therapies are best advised for treating DPD symptoms…
