The International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS) is an Alberta government service. It does assessments and issues certificates that compare educational credentials from other countries to educational standards in Canada.

In Canada, some occupations are regulated. Regulated occupations have legal requirements or restrictions in place to protect the public. To work in these occupations, you must register with the appropriate professional regulatory organization.
