Dental Assistants in Canada with a minimum of core skills licenced and practising in any Canadian jurisdiction are generally eligible for registration and licensure in any other Canadian jurisdiction. Variances to this may occur where the dental assistant is not registered and licenced or does not hold the minimum core skills. Regulatory authorities reserve the right to ensure that applicants have met the initial requirements as defined in the Dental Assisting - Labour Mobility Agreement, 2001.
Non Regulated Jurisdictions
Dental Assistants from Ontario graduating from CDAC accredited programs holding the NDAEB certificate and demonstrating sufficient practice hours are transfer eligible. Dental Assistants graduating from other programs holding an NDAEB certificate and having successfully completed a Clinical Practice Evaluation will also be transfer eligible based on sufficient practice hours. The MRA now reflects the necessity to accomodate workers from a non regulated jurisdiction.
