Transferring from other Provinces:

Because other provincial associations in Canada grant similar designations to Manitoba, it is important to note that a designation only has effect within the province in which it was issued.   Designations from various associations represent different scopes of practice so individuals who possess designations from another province must apply for a designation transfer.
