The Alberta Society of Professional Biologists

The Governments of Alberta and British Columbia have agreed to mutually recognize or otherwise reconcile standards and regulations that operate to restrict or impair labour mobility for Biologists, such that any worker fully certified for an occupation by one Authority shall be recognized as qualified to practice that occupation by the other Authority.

The Alberta Society of Professional Biologists and the College of Applied Biology (British Columbia) (collectively, the Authorities and individually, an Authority) enter into this Labour Mobility Agreement (LMA) in order to comply with the obligations of the British Columbia and Alberta Trade, Investment, and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA). All registered professional biologists from British Columbia are able to apply for membership in ASPB without going through the normal application process.
