    The International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS) is a service provided by the Alberta government. Its purpose is to assess and issue certificates that compare educational credentials obtained from other countries to the educational standards in Canada. In Canada, certain occupations are regulated, meaning they have specific legal requirements or restrictions in place to ensure public protection. To work in these regulated occupations, it is necessary to register with the appropriate professional regulatory organization.
