In January 2009, Canada's
premiers endorsed amendments to
Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT)
that commit all provinces and
territories to improving labour
mobility for certified workers in
professions and trades.
However, the AIT allows for
requirements to continue, such as
applications and application
fees, evidence of good character
and criminal background checks,
evidence of good standing, active
practice, additional non-material
testing, experience, examinations
or assessments for local
jurisprudence or local knowledge,
Accordingly, If you are a
registered salesperson in another
province, OMVIC will require you
to complete the following
requirements that apply to all
new applicants as follows:
- You submit a completed
Individual Application with required identification and a $250 fee.
- You complete the OMVIC certification course. This is a correspondence course in which you will learn the law and
ethics of motor vehicle sales specific to the province of Ontario.
- You meet the same eligibility test OMVIC applies to all applicants (i.e. that your past conduct
does not afford reasonable grounds to believe you will not conduct business with honesty, integrity, in compliance
with law and with financial responsibility). In order to determine whether you satisfy this test, OMVIC may run
background checks including, but not limited to, a criminal record check or a credit check.
