Canadian Denturists - CFTA

The Canadian Free Trade AgreementĀ  (CFTA) is an intergovernmental trade agreement signed by Canadian First Ministers that entered into force on July 1, 2017.

Alberta's Labour mobility obligations under the CFTA will remain the same as they were under the Agreement of Internal Trade (AIT).

Its purpose is to reduce and eliminate, to the extent possible, barriers to the free movement of persons, goods, services, and investment within Canada and to establish an open, efficient, and stable domestic market.

This applies to the movement of health professions within Canadian Jurisdictions.

The College of Alberta Denturists has corresponded with the other Canadian denturist regulatory bodies, to obtain and review the differences in registration processes andĀ "scopes of practice" from those in Alberta.

We have completed this task and have generated a draft document of "legitimate objectives" regarding interprovincial mobility within our profession, and are now waiting for governmental input regarding the "legitimate objectives". AIT Draft Document

Until this has been approved by government and College Council, the College of Alberta Denturists will remain addressing interprovincial applications for registration via the requirements of the Denturist Profession Regulation enacted under the Alberta Health Professions Act.
