Out-of-province ECE qualifications - Manitoba


Individuals certified in Early Childhood Education in another province or territory may apply for classification in Manitoba under the Agreement on Internal Trade and The Labour Mobility Act.

If an applicant has not already achieved certification in another province or territory, an assessment of credentials is carried out. All two-year ECE diploma programs from a public college in Canada are recognized in Manitoba. A completed application form and an official transcript are sent to the Qualifications Coordinator.  Applicants may be eligible for the CBA/PLA program, which takes about 8 months to complete.  The process involves portfolio development, self assessment and demonstration of the evidence of performance, assessed against the Standards of Performance developed for the field.
