Investigating the Barriers and Challenges of the Foreign Credential Recognition Process for Internationally Trained Professionals

Submitted by on February 7, 2013 – 3:37 pmNo Comment | 1,291 views

In collaboration with the S.U.C.C.E.S.S. Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) Loan Project, Life Strategies is conducting four focus groups with ITPs, one for each of the following sectors: health care, engineering, finance and accounting, and legal. Our goal is to better understand the barriers, beyond the financial challenges, faced by ITPs with the credential recognition process. The information gathered will help us develop tools and services to assist internationally trained professionals in successfully integrating into the Canadian economy.

If you have clients that may be interested in participating, please feel free to pass along the attached flyer with full details.

Each participant will receive a $50 VISA gift card for their contribution and light refreshments will be provided.

NOTE: Space is limited to 12 participants for each session.
