Hello my name is Michel,
I am from the states and i graduated as an Electrician in the US with more than 15 years experiences. I moved to quebec 2 years ago but they do not reconize my diploma.
I would like to know if anyone on here could help me because Im planning to move to Toronto and would like to know who to contact to get my papers evaluated.
Thanks a lot for your time.
The Ministry of Eduction, apprenticeship division is who you want to talk to. You'll have to make an appointment and go in person. Bring with you proof of your experience, you need 5 years worth. They might not recognize your diploma, but if you have the experience, then you can challenge the test. They can give you more details.
You will be required to write the test based on the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC). There are a number of pre-exam course you can register that will help you quite a bit.
You cannot start your own business unless you are a Master Electrician, you can only work for an authorized Electrical Contractor.
