Participants also had the opportunity to network with Deloitte staff.
As a newcomer to Alberta, the first step to working in your occupation is to find out if your occupation is regulated. In Alberta, some occupations are regulated, meaning there are legal requirements and restrictions which you have to meet work in that occupation. The Government of Alberta has compiled a list of regulated professions in Alberta, along with information on regulatory organizations responsible for licensure in those occupations. The list and guides for some regulated occupations are available at: www.AlbertaCanada.com/regulated-professions
