Registration Transfer and Multi-Province Registration
If you are currently a Professional Agrologist (P.Ag) or agronome (agr.) registered and practicing in one province and need to be registered in another province due to a work transfer or because you intend to work in more than one province, your professional designation is immediately recognized by the new province(s). This is the fundamental principle of labour mobility in Canada that must be adhered to by the provincial regulators of agrologists.
The provincial institutes have adopted a standard process making it easy to transfer registration in one or more than one province. The process is consistent with labor mobility requirements of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement, revised and signed by Canadian Ministers in July 2017 (formally called “The Agreement on Internal Trade“). The process is efficient, reduces paperwork, and ensures the public is protected.
If you are currently a Professional Agrologist (P.Ag. or agr.) registered, follow the three-step process below:
- Contact your home institute; tell them you are required to become registered in another province, and authorize them to send your file documents to the other province(s).
- Complete a registration application form from the new province(s) in which you want to become registered. The registration form is necessary as it allows the new province to capture needed information and open a new file for you.

- Pay the appropriate fees in the new province(s).
For further information on the agrology profession in one of the ten provinces go to Provincial Regulators.

The Federal Labour Mobility Coordinating Group (LMCG) developped a Guide for Regulatory Authorities. The document outlines guiding principles for requesting information during the application process for transfer.
