Regulated professions

In Canada, 20% of the professions in Canada are regulated for reasons of health and public safety. A regulated profession is a profession that is governed by a regulatory body that sets the criteria for membership, evaluates qualifications and diplomas, and awards the certificate, title or licensure to its members. This organization may be called in some provinces or territory "a regulated order" and in others "a professional association". However, we must be careful because we find regulated orders that are regulatory bodies and professional associations that are groups of professionals in the same field.
