I am heading to Edmonton mate,hopefully by mid March.
I haven't looked into certification,as there are 3 distinct classes of concrete finisher in Canada.
The employer reckons that a letter from my previous employer even stating just 3 years experience is more than enough,luckily an old boss has returned from dubai,so I can have him write me a letter confirming my other 5 years experience in the industry.

Thanks for that heads up mate,but it seems that I am covered(thankfully)

http://tradesecrets.alberta.ca/trade.../profiles/048/

Its an optional certified trade,I think only in Quebec it is mandatory.

'To work as a Concrete Finisher in Alberta, a person must:

be a registered apprentice, an Alberta-certified journeyperson, hold a valid recognized credential , OR
work for an employer who is satisfied that the worker has the skills and knowledge expected of a certified journeyperson, OR
be self-employed.'

Obviously I have satisfied my employer
