Last week I had a phone call from a Canadian chef about SCC so told her to contact Transport Canada directly and this is what she found out.. hope you find it of use..
I’m happy that the MCA recognizes the Canadian SCC. All countries recognized are listed here:
The mail he sent won’t mean much to anyone because we discussed most of the situation on the phone. He’s at the head office so people should just contact their local Transport Canada office and the local officers there will answer any additional questions they have.
The first 3 screen caps are all the addresses and phone numbers across Canada where the cook can call to double check what documents they need. They can then go there and take their written exam (multiple choice). They should call their local branch of Transport Canada first so they know exactly what to bring with them and when they can schedule the exam (I’m not sure they need to actually schedule an exam seeing as it’s just a form with a test).
They must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents (if they’re not citizens) and they have to be in Canada to take the exam(s). There’s no other way.
Addresses can be found in this document linked below. (Chapter 1 section 1.8 Page 12).
The fourth screen cap shows exactly what a cook requires to get the Canadian SCC.
