Regulated or not

Most occupations in Canada are not regulated. The employer can assess a foreign credential and decide on whether the applicant has the required skills and experience to do the job. There are specific occupations however, where people who wish to work in a field need to be registered with an association or organization that oversees the recognition of foreign-trained individuals. For example, is illegal to practise the profession of engineer or to use the title “engineer” without being licensed as a full member in a provincial or territorial association. Foreign-trained firefighters however are free to immediately seek work without worrying about regulatory restrictions.

See this comprehensive list for information on your occupation.
