Non-Regulated Health Professions
Many health professions in Canada have an assistive level where workers support licensed professionals in the workplace. Usually, the assistant is assigned work and supervised by the licensed professional. Some IEHPs may find employment at the assistive level while they seek licensure/certification, or they may find that their qualifications more closely match those of the assistive level.
Information about each of the following professions can be found in the (hyperlink to ) Self Assessment Readiness Tools™, or in the Working in Canada Tool (hyperlink to http://www.jobbank.gc.ca/occupation_search-eng.do?lang=eng). Use the national occupational classifications, or NOCs, to find salary and job information.
