International Qualification Network

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has launched a new website named the International Qualification Network (IQN). It promotes innovations in the assessment and recognition of foreign worker qualifications, therefore allowing immigrants to integrate into the Canadian labour market faster. It achieves this goal by allowing stakeholders to share effective evaluation tools and practices, studies, pilot projects, reports and videos and post information on events, such as workshops and conferences.

The website acts as a virtual space for employers, regulatory bodies, governments and organizations serving immigrants to capitalize on promising qualification assessment and recognition practices. The creation of the website is part of a two-year commitment to support provincial, territorial and stakeholder efforts to improve international credential recognition through the Pan-Canadian Framework for the Assessment and Recognition of Foreign Qualifications.
