Montreal Accord 2009
The Montreal Accord developed by the Agrologists Institutes of Canada and l’Ordre
des agronomes du Québec summarizes the discussions and the decisions agreed
upon by each individual institute and l’Ordre to achieve mutual recognition of
professional agrologists between provinces and meet the obligations of Chapter VII
in the Agreement on Internal Trade (AIT).
In October 2008, the proposed changes to Chapter VII were not signed off by the
Forum of Labour Mobility Market Ministers (FLMM). Yet it is expected that those
changes would be in force on April 1st 2009. The consortia representing
professional agrologists in all ten provinces agreed to strive for mutual recognition
of existing licensed professional agrologists (P.Ags) by April 2009 and in the longer
term, to enhance labour mobility for new P.Ags by continuing the work on the
harmonization and standardization of licensing requirements.
