Whereas: 

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:

  1. Those working toward the recognition of foreign trained professionals be involved in the process from the beginning to the end;
  2. Evaluation of the outcomes of this initiative be based on detailed demographic indicators, broken down by gender, age and country of origin.
