A question regarding becoming a tech

by Catherine
(Portland, ME, USA)

I am currently a Certified Pharmacy Technician in Portland, Maine. I am thinking very seriously of moving to Vancouver, BC, and would like to know what I need to do to become a licensed pharmacy technician in Canada. Also, would my PTCB certification be recognized in Canada or is their another exam I would need to take to become certified? Thanks for your help.
