Claiming application and assessment fees for employment?

My partner was employed as a registered nurse outside of Canada immediately before immigrating to Canada.  To continue working as a registered nurse in Canada she had to pay an application fee to the nursing union as well as a nursing assessment fee.   Without paying these fees she would not be allowed to work as a registered nurse.  Where would we claim these fees?  Line 212?

Claiming application and assessment fees for employment?

Special application fees and assessment fees are not tax deductible on your income tax return.  However, if you did have to pay licensing fees, you may be able to claim these on your income tax return.  Please see the following link for more information, https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/individuals/topics/about-your-tax-return/tax-re...
