Labour mobility provides a larger pool of qualified candidates. Employers should ensure that the workers in regulated occupations they hire are certified in Alberta by a regulatory authority to comply with standards specified in legislation (acts and regulations).

If you’re an Alberta employer with labour mobility concerns please contact Alberta Labour Mobility.

Labour mobility survey reports

These annual reports provide a snapshot of the domestic labour mobility rates of certified workers to Alberta.

The province’s labour force receives significant numbers of certified workers from other provinces and territories who apply for certification to work in Alberta.

The survey data used in these reports supports and informs labour force planning across a number of government ministries, within industry and other interested partners.
