Hello There,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

The Ontario Colleges of Trade is a certifying body for the regulated trades.

According to Employment Ontario, refugee claimants and people without PR or Citizenship status should be eligible to write the Trade Equivalency Assessment & Credential Recognition exam. The guide and application package offers alternative options to refugees and refugee claimants who cannot prove prior work history.
If your hours are verified and approved by the Ministry of Labour, Training, and Skills Development, you can then call Ontario College of Trades Client Services to book the exam.

Contact the Colleges of Trades’ Client Services at 1-855-299-0028 (toll-free) or 647-847-3000 (in the GTA) to speak with an operator about your eligibility to write this exam.

If you have any additional questions, please feel free to post them here.

We hope this information is helpful.
