Beauty Industry Mobility Across Canada

Beauty Industry Mobility Across Canada

Beauty Industry Mobility Across Canada

With the growing number of beauty professionals in this country, we thought we would take a look at employment mobility through Canada. While certification standards differ from province to province, here are some things you need to know if you are planning to move.

In Canada, all of the provinces and territories have regulation for hairstylists through the Red Seal Journeyman Certification. With this certificate, you are able to legally work from province to province. However, each province has different standards of training, so check out the National Employment Requirements to find out what you need to begin your trade. Barbering falls under the Hairstylist occupation as well, so certification will still be mandatory to practice this specialized craft.

As an Esthetician in Canada, however, you may find your mobility limited, as few provinces have regulation trade requirements:
  • New Brunswick regulates Estheticians.
  • Manitoba regulates their Electrologists and Estheticians through Apprenticeship Manitoba
  • Saskatchewan divides their esthetic regulations between Nail Technicians and Skin Care specialists, also through an apprenticeship and trade certification commission.

Training and on-the-job hours may transfer to a regulated province if you meet their individual criteria. If you are moving outside of a regulated province, your training and certification will be appealing to employers in a province that does not have these requirements.

While the country is looking to start standardizing esthetics, hairstyling is the only beauty industry career that has national standards. If you are considering moving, or you need more information about labour mobility in Canada, visit Worker’s Mobility.

BACTERIA IS A BEAUTY BANISHER

As service providers our goal is to send clients home feeling amazing, relaxed, and rocking beautiful manicured fingers and toes, glowing skin and trendy/healthy hair. We do our best to accomplish our goals. We use the best products and ensure we are properly trained.

We know what it takes to make our clients look their best… but do we know how to best protect our clients?

Germs and viruses will take that amazing service upside down!
Let’s take a look at some of the guidelines set out by Alberta Health Services to keep our clients looking gorgeous, glowing and most importantly germ free!

Some serious viruses and infections can be and have been known to be spread in salons and spas. Hepatitis C, MRSA, respiratory disease, fungus and even Hot Tub Folliculitis (an infection caused by a type of bacteria that thrives in poorly sanitized foot baths) have been confirmed.

Are You Inspection Ready?

These are some of the guidelines to follow to help you protect your clients:
  • All work surfaces shall be constructed of smooth, non-porous and cleanable materials (i.e. painted drywall, vinyl composite tiles, linoleum or sealed concrete, etc.).
  • Work areas must be adequately lit and ventilated.
  • Client contact surfaces (tables, chairs, headrests etc.) must have a smooth, non-porous and easy to clean finish.
  • Adequate storage space must be available for equipment, instruments and supplies.
  • Suitable garbage containers must be readily available, maintained and emptied regularly.
  • Approved disinfectants for disinfecting equipment, surfaces and reusable instruments must be available.
  • An acceptable skin antiseptic shall be provided for skin preparation and post treatment.
  • Items, that cannot be properly disinfected/sterilized or are intended for single use, must be discarded after each client use.
  • A puncture-resistant container shall be provided for the disposal of needles, razor blades and other sharp devices or instruments.
  • Pigments, cosmetics and other supplies must be labeled and handled in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Chemicals, detergents and cleaners must be stored, maintained and prepared in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

The spread of these beauty banishing bacteria is completely preventable and should be the #1 priority.

So remember to follow all sanitization procedures, use the proper level disinfectants and disinfection tools because no matter how gorgeous your client looks when they leave BACTERIA IS A BEAUTY BANISHER!

Please refer to the Personal Service Regulation and the associated Health Standards and Guidelines for a complete list of requirements.
