The BC government announced today that it has signed an agreement with Alberta that will eiminate barriers to labour mobility between the two provinces.
The agreement - the Alberta-British Columbia Trade, Investment, and Labour Mobility Agreement (TILMA) - also eliminates barriers to trade and investment.
The news release states that TILMA will "enhance labour mobility by recognizing occupational certifications of workers in both provinces".
The agreement commences April 1, 2007 and will include a transition period to April 2009 before the agreement comes into full effect to give both governments time to bring their measures into conformity.
"Jurisdiction Issues In The Employment Law Context" is the title of a paper prepared by Carman J. Overholt, Q.C., a lawyer at Fraser Milner Casgrain in Vancouver and articled student Matthew Stacey.
The paper was prepared for the Fraser Milner Casgrain LLP National Employment, Labour and Pensions Law Seminar held in Calgary, Alberta on October 27, 2004.
