Well having seen my teaching girlfriend and my wife attempt to breech the walls of "Professional Associations" Apparently it was to hard for the BC teachers association to confirm what the University of Montreal was teaching in their special needs course. And a Law Degree from London England is apparently worth nothing in BC and by the way you have to study tax law coming in, despite the course being optional in UBC. The fact that the head of the Law Society at the time was author of said textbook was purely a coincidence. Plus let's have someone with 10 years experience, article with someone who has 5 years experience to "Learn the Canadian way". Where upon she spent most of her time telling her employer " Yea you can't do that and no that won't work, because.....". I have other stories from other people in other associations, I know the purported reasoning behind the idea, but they have becoming the walls to keep out messy foreigners with different ideas.
Foreigners? You mean like graduates from the next province over?
It is like the bad old days when we couldn't ship milk and beer from province to province.
But we could ship milk and beer from province A into the States and from the States into province B.
I can more easily find work in the States than I can in Canada and then work on Canadian projects for an American employer. I don't need to jump through the professional hoops to work for the Yanks. And they can always find a willing ring and stamp to work with in Canada for a fee.
