Information on requirements to practise

The profession of medical radiation technologist is regulated in Alberta, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, and Saskatchewan. In these provinces, you must be registered with the provincial regulatory body to practise and to use the designation assigned by that regulatory body. Therefore, once you know where you will settle and work in Canada, you should contact the appropriate regulatory body (see list below) for details on registration procedures.

In all other provinces and territories, the profession is not regulated; however, most employers will require proof of successful completion of the national certification exam, administered by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT), and proof of registration with the provincial professional association.

Information on assessment of qualifications

Foreign- trained medical radiation technologists must have their credentials assessed to establish their eligibility to write the CAMRT certification exam.

Alberta, Ontario and Quebec assess the credentials for international applicants who wish to work in their province. CAMRT performs the assessment of credentials on behalf of all other provinces. Please note that there is a fee for this assessment.

Review CAMRT’s information for international applicants or contact them at:


Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT)

You should note that if you are already licensed to practise your occupation in a province or territory of Canada, and later wish to work in a non-regulated occupation, employers may request that you provide them with a formal assessment of your academic credentials.

If that is the case, or if you wish to have your credentials assessed for a purpose other than practising a regulated occupation in Canada, you may consult our Fact Sheet No. 2, “Assessment and recognition of credentials for the purpose of employment in Canada” and contact an academic credential evaluation service. Although evaluation services offer expert advice on how qualifications obtained abroad compare with academic credentials obtained in Canada, their evaluations are advisory only and do not guarantee recognition of your qualifications for employment or certification purposes in Canada. Please note that evaluation services charge a fee for their assessments.



Information on assessment for immigration purposes, under the Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP)

The Federal Skilled Worker Program (FSWP) is an immigration program administered by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), the department responsible for immigration to Canada.

CIC has listed this profession (NOC 3215) as an eligible occupation under the FSWP. To apply for immigration to Canada under this program, one of the requirements* is to obtain an “Educational Credential Assessment” (ECA) for immigration purposes from a CIC-designated organization. We invite you to communicate directly with one of the designated organizations to begin this process from outside Canada.

*It is important to note that this requirement is for immigration purposes only. It is separate from the process to obtain a license to practice from the relevant regulatory body listed below. Obtaining a license to practice is not required to apply for immigration.
