ABOUT

Who We Are

What is now known as the Canadian Network of Agencies for Regulation (“CNAR”) was established in 2003 as a federation of national organizations whose provincial and territorial members are responsible for protecting the public through self-regulation.

 

Today, CNAR connects Canada's provincial and national regulators, licensing boards, accrediting agencies, examining bodies, and government officials at all levels to discuss challenges, share ideas and develop best practices related to a wide range of issues relevant to organizations engaged in the self-regulation of professions and occupations.
