(The same applies to American actuaries going to Canada, although the paperwork burden is slightly greater.)

What happens if/when NAFTA goes away remains to be seen.
Thanks for the info, I had no idea it could be this easy. By credentialed, do you mean fellow ? Or just Associate ?

Here's the official language from the actual NAFTA agreement:

Quote:
An Actuary must satisfy the necessary requirements to be recognized as an actuary by a professional actuarial association or society. A professional actuarial association or society means a professional actuarial association or society operating in the territory of at least one of the Parties.
(Technically mathematicians are a NAFTA profession, but a footnote was added to clarify that actuaries count as mathematicians.)

I'm not aware of any rulings that clarify that in more useful terms. I could read that as requiring AAA or CIA membership, or as just requiring associateship. As a practical matter, it probably depends on the immigration officer who receives the paperwork (and I doubt he/she would know the difference, unless there's been a memo on the subject).

Way back Canadian citizens with just an acsc degree were able to get the TN-1 visa for entry level actuarial jobs. Things may be different now as many US schools are producing acsc grads.
