Alberta/BC Certificate Portability
If you are moving from British Columbia to Alberta or vice versa it is important to understand how Alberta/BC Certificate Portability can help. Under the Trade, Investment, and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) between Alberta and British Columbia, a current Alberta certificate in Emergency, Standard or Enhanced First Aid Certification issued by an Alberta Approved First Aid Training Agency will be recognized in British Columbia. Alberta workers moving to BC or temporarily working in BC and requiring a BC certificate must apply in person to an Approved Training Agency in BC or an Alberta St. John Ambulance Centre for an “out-of-jurisdiction” certificate by producing their valid Alberta certificate and photo ID. An orientation package to WorkSafe BC requirements will be provided to applicants at the time of application. Min. age: 16
Workers moving from BC to Alberta must have a valid BC certificate and once in Alberta, receive an orientation from their employer on Alberta First Aid requirements. Alberta Work Safe bulletins which include the information required may be downloaded from the Alberta Government web site: www.worksafely.org No additional certificate is required. The BC certificate is recognized until the expiry date. Once expired a full course must be taken in Alberta.
