Foreign Credential Recognition (FCR) is the process of verifying that the education and job experience obtained in another country are equal to Canadian standards. Workers should have the freedom to practice their occupation wherever opportunities exist, whether they were certified in Canada or in another country. This is also known as Labour Mobility.
Funding for Organizations
Qualified organizations may be eligible for funding for projects or activities that ensure that foreign credential recognition processes are accessed in a fair, consistent, transparent and timely manner, and facilitate labour mobility.
