Mutual Recognition Agreement Application Information

Mutual Recognition Agreement Application Information (for Speech-Language Pathologists)

In most Canadian provinces, the profession of speech-language pathology is regulated. If you plan to work in a province where the profession is regulated, please ensure you contact the regulatory body in addition to completing the SAC MRA application.

Employers in provinces and territories without regulatory bodies may require SAC membership and clinical certification.
