Canada invests $86M into reducing barriers to foreign credential recognition

The Government of Canada is investing $86M into 15 organizations across Canada, including Bow Valley College, to help internationally educated health professionals (IEHPs) practice in Canada. The funding will be used to reduce barriers to foreign credential recognition, provide relevant work experience, and facilitate labour mobility for IEHPs from key occupations–including nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, laboratory technicians, and respiratory therapy. BVC will receive up to $9.4M for a project that will help foreign-trained nurses to gain employment in Canada.
