I have read online that some provinces in Canada allow a direct swap of a Republic of Ireland driving licence for a licence for that province (maybe Ontario and Saskatchewan). This is a fairly new arrangement. I can't find online a list of the provinces that allow this. What are all of the provinces that do a direct swap?
I have found references for 3 Canadian provinces.
Ontario seems to be the most clear. From Government of Ontario website:
You can exchange an out-of-province licence for an Ontario licence, if you are re-locating from ... Republic of Ireland.
Saskatchewan is less clear. From Government of Saskatchewan website:
If you are a new resident to Saskatchewan and have a valid driver's licence from ... Republic of Ireland ... you can apply for a Saskatchewan licence within 90 days of moving to Saskatchewan. In most cases, you will be able to get a Saskatchewan licence issued without taking a road test.
Manitoba has changed recently, as reported by the Irish Times:
An agreement has been signed between the Road Safety Authority [of Ireland] and the province of Manitoba allowing for the exchange of licences.
UPDATE 2015-06-23: British Columbia has made an exchange agreement with Ireland similar to Ontario. (link)
