If you believe you have experience and qualifications in a trade that are equivalent to having completed an Ontario apprenticeship program, you may apply with a Trade Equivalency Assessment (TEA). This assessment will look at your previous training and work experience and determine whether you are qualified to write the Certificate of Qualification exam for this trade.
The length of the TEA assessment process is largely dependent on the information and completeness of your application and portfolio. The designated College of trades Canada will be conducting a very thorough assessment verifying all the credentials and letters you have supplied and cannot predict how quickly your references can be checked out. The College of trades Canada will contact you within 20 business days of receiving your application either for additional information or with your results.
All provinces and territories charge a fee for conducting assessments. Some provinces set their fees higher than others in order to recover costs, whereas others choose to subsidize assessment costs through general revenue (i.e. taxpayers). The College’s assessment fees reflect the actual costs of conducting those assessments so that neither existing College members, nor Ontario taxpayers are burdened with the costs of conducting Trade Equivalency Assessments for new applicants.
The TEA assessment is one way to have your experience and skills compared to apprenticeship programs in Canada. If your trade is an apprenticeship program, you can submit an application and portfolio to be assessed against the apprenticeship program. If you meet all the requirements of the apprenticeship program you may be permitted to write the Certificate of Qualification examination and passing will result in certification. Trade certification is the industry standard and recognizes a highly skilled worker.
You will be able to move and work in all provinces and territories in Canada whether you’re in a Red Seal trade or other trade (not Red Seal) if that province has the same trade because of the Agreement on Internal trade.
It is $200 to have your experience and skills assessed through the Trade Equivalency Assessment in Canada. This fee is based on a cost-recovery model for the evaluation services provided.
