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:

  1. Business experiences with issues and processes related to recognition of foreign credentials, and their implications for further government approaches in this area, and
  2. 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.
