CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau) certification is not mandatory in all cases, but it is required for many welding projects in Canada. For instance, if a welding project is under the jurisdiction of the Canadian government, CWB certification is often required for the

welder and the welding company. Similarly, if a project is funded by a Canadian company or organization, they may require CWB certification for the welding work.

However, if the welding project is being done for a private individual or company that is not subject to Canadian regulations, CWB certification may not be required. In general, CWB certification is considered an industry standard for quality assurance and is highly regarded in the welding profession. Having a CWB certification can demonstrate a high level of competency and skill, making it attractive to employers and customers.
