OCCUPATIONS AND TRADES
Nada Khirdaji, B.A. (Hons.), M.A., LL.B & Ron J. Maddock, LL.B.
In addition to the fields of health care and law, provinces routinely regulate the operation of several important professions that interact with lawyers and their clients. Accountants, architects, engineers, land surveyors and others play important roles in many legal files, and issues of qualification, misconduct and discipline readily arise. The provinces and territories also control entry into many skilled trades and have established programs allowing qualified trades people to practise their trade in any province or territory without having to obtain additional qualifications. The Halsbury's Occupations and Trades (2019 Reissue) title offers a straightforward description of the operation and responsibilities of these key self-governing or regulated professions, and of the rules governing entry into, and the practice of, various certified trades in Canada. It serves as an excellent first reference for anyone seeking a clear understanding of the rules that impact these groups.
Among the general areas canvassed for each profession are:
- Relevant provincial and territorial associations
- Governing bodies
- Membership requirements, licensing and entitlement to practice
- Practice reviews, misconduct and discipline
Other topics relevant to specific professions or trades include:
- Rules governing professional firms
- Duties and oversight mechanisms
- Provincial trade designation
- Inter-provincial standards for trades (Red Seal Program)
