Every carpenter who is issued a ‘Certificate of Qualification' also receives a license number in association with their certificate. This license number recognises every carpenter as a professional - eligible to practise in the province of his or her registration. These professionals who achieve a ‘Red Seal' along with their ‘Certificate of Qualification' are eligible to practise as a carpenter in any province or territory throughout Canada. The ‘Red Seal' is referred to as an ‘Inter-Provincial Standard' endorsement and a picture of it is listed below. Please refer to the following websites to confirm this information.
