Use of Stamps and Seals
A registered practicing Agrologist (Professional Agrologists, Technical Agrologists, or Agrologist-in-Training) may affix a stamp or seal on technical submissions or other documents including confirmation of supervision of others. The stamp or seal authorized by the MIA is official and indicates to a client, employer, or the public that work has been produced by or under the supervision of a professional entitled to practice agrology in Manitoba.

Information for the Public: Unauthorized Practice
Practicing Agrology without being registered is called "Unauthorized Practice" in Manitoba. This activity is contrary to "The Agrologists Act (Section 15)". While most companies and their employees are working well with MIA in this area, there are still instances where more information and education is needed. To protect the public, MIA reviews information and complaints about individuals who may be practicing Agrology without being registered.

The four western Agrologist Institutes are providing leadership in several areas to keep the national organization moving forward. High on the priority list are two projects; one moves toward a national standard for Agrologists who transfer between Institutes, and the other priority is the development of a standard process for agrology course identification.
A standard procedure for transfers will benefit members and their employers, streamline the process, and take the guess-work out of how this gets accomplished. Registered members want a seamless and easy to follow process and that is what we will deliver by working together.
Identification of agrology courses using a standard method is a more complex task but one that will serve the needs of the profession Canada-wide going forward. These projects are among those being tackled by the national body to make sure obligations are met under the Agreement on Internal Trade.
Agrologists Canada is a national body comprised of the 10 provincial Agrologists organizations that regulate Agrologists in the public interest. Agrologists Canada supports development of standards and facilitates mobility of Professional Agrologists across the country.
