The government of Canada expanded National Newcomer Navigation Network to help internationally educated health care professionals on June 6, 2022.


Marie-France Lalonde, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), announced nearly $1.5 million in funding to promote sector collaboration of foreign qualification and credential recognition requirements for internationally educated healthcare professionals.


This initiative will help internationally educated healthcare workers fill key positions, remove barriers to working in Canada’s health care system, and help them access credential and qualification requirements faster.


In addition, the project will:

  • aim to identify barriers faced by internationally educated health care professionals in having their foreign credentials recognized in Canada

  • provide practical policy recommendations to address gaps in the sector

  • help internationally educated health care professionals access credential and qualification requirements faster

  • remove barriers to working in Canada’s health care system
