Assessing and Recognizing Foreign Credentials in Canada - Employers' Views
A report by the Canadian Labour and Business Centre (CLBC) looking at assessment and recognition of the education credentials of foreign-trained workers from an employer perspective.
CLBC interviewed, by telephone, a selection of 25 employer representatives, government representatives, and representatives of provincial credentials-assessment services. The interviews explored employers views and experiences with assessing and recognizing the credentials of foreign-trained workers, as well as approaches to raising the awareness of employers on these subjects.
The project sought to engage Canadian employers in preliminary discussions around two issues:
- Business experiences with issues and processes related to recognition of foreign credentials, and their implications for further government approaches in this area, and
- Communicating with the business community to raise awareness of and interest in foreign credential recognition issues, including promotion of provincially-mandated credential assessment services.
The focus of the work was on credentials assessment issues, as distinct from other immigration-related concerns highlighted by employers.
