Citizenship and Immigration Canada, HRDC, Industry Canada and Canadian Heritage plan to improve the process for recognizing foreign credentials, for example by allowing for the process to begin overseas; coordinating credential evaluation processes; setting up a single source of information and licensing requirements and establishing norms for work experience;
Therefore be it resolved
That the CCR advocate with CIC, HRDC, Industry Canada, Canadian Heritage, MRCI and other relevant bodies that:
- Those working toward the recognition of foreign trained professionals be involved in the process from the beginning to the end;
- Evaluation of the outcomes of this initiative be based on detailed demographic indicators, broken down by gender, age and country of origin.
