Transfer and Multi-Province Registration Process

The three Prairie Agrologist Institutes (AIA, SIA, and MIA) work together and have the same standard process making it easy to transfer registration or become registered in more than one province.

If you require your practice and registration status transferred to Manitoba or if you
require multi-province registration, see Prairie-wide Registration Transfer and Multi-Province Registration Process for more information.

Practicing without a Current Registration is Illegal

Only individuals registered with MIA are authorized to work as an Agrologist in Manitoba or use the title “P.Ag.” or “Tech.Ag.” as per section 15 of the Agrologists Act of Manitoba.
