Foreign Credential Recognition Program

From Employment and Social Development Canada

The Foreign Credential Recognition Program supports the labour market integration of skilled newcomers by:

  • simplifying and harmonizing national credential recognition processes
  • providing loans and support services to help with the foreign credential recognition processes, and
  • helping skilled newcomers gain their first Canadian work experience in their profession or field of study

The Foreign Credential Recognition Program also supports joint initiatives among provinces and territories and other partners to improve the mobility of Canadian workers in regulated occupations as they seek jobs across Canada.

The objective of the Program is to:

  • support skilled newcomers, and
  • reduce barriers that keep newcomers from fully participating in the Canadian labour market
