Canadian Network of Agencies of Regulation (CNAR)
CNAR is the federation of national organizations whose provincial and territorial members are identified in legislation as responsible for protection of the public through the self-regulation of professions and occupations. We maintain a subscription to CNAR in order to access information and resources that are relevant to a certification organization. CNAR's mandate is to support the self-regulation of professionals and occupations. CNAR strives to increase the understanding of the Canadian public, governments and others, of the value of self-regulation; facilitate collaboration at the national level amongst our members, federal government agencies and other national and international groups; monitor and respond to federal legislation and policy; serve as an information clearing house on common issues; and develop and share resources.
