Key Points

  • Canada’s government will grant funds to organizations with projects aimed at reducing entry and qualification barriers of highly skilled foreign nationals working in healthcare


The government of Canada will invest in projects that reduce barriers currently preventing qualified and skilled foreign nationals from gaining work experience in their profession or field of study in Canada under the Foreign Credential Recognition Program. Eligible projects will focus on at least one of the following areas:

  • Improving and simplifying steps in the foreign credentials recognition process and expanding access to practice in the field
  • Providing internationally educated health professionals (IEHPs) with Canadian work experience that is relevant to their intended fields of work
  • Facilitating labor mobility between jurisdictions in Canada for healthcare professionals and IEHPs

In addition, proposed projects must include at least one of the following measures:

  • Development, testing, and implementation of credential recognition systems. The system must focus on streamlining regulatory processes and harmonizing occupational requirements
  • Include additional employment support, such as monitoring the integration of IEPH foreign nationals into the Canadian workforce

What are the Changes?

The government of Canada will accept project proposals to reduce barriers preventing highly skilled healthcare professionals from working in the country. The government will accept project proposals until January 30, 2023.
