Labour Mobility Applicants

This page describes the process for applicants who are currently registered in another Canadian jurisdiction as a Licensed Practical Nurse or Registered Practical Nurse (Ontario). If this describes you, and you have never been registered with the CLPNA before, you will fill out the Labour Mobility application.

If this does not describe you, please take the applicant quiz.
