On October 29, 2014 the Government of Canada entered into an agreement which allows Irish immigrants residing in Ontario to exchange their Irish driver’s license for a Canadian license.

Prior to this change, Irish drivers moving to Ontario started off as learner drivers and had to take the driving test to fully be licensed in Ontario. This agreement also allows for Ontario drivers moving to Ireland to swap their Canadian license for an Irish one.

This agreement will benefit individuals planning on moving from Ireland to Ontario in the future, as well as the large population of over 50,000 Irish born individuals living in Ontario.
