Foreign Credential Recognition

Foreign Credential Recognition is the process of verifying that the education and job experience obtained in another country are equal to the standards established for Canadian workers. As a newcomer, even if you have many years of experience, you may not be able to work in your trade or profession in Canada right away. In most cases, you will need to have your credentials assessed. Citizen and Immigration Canada provides information, tools, path-finding and referral services on foreign credential recognition to help foreign-trained workers succeed and put their skills to work in Canada more quickly.
