Hiring Internationally Trained and Educated Individuals

An assessment of credentials obtained overseas will help you understand the value and Canadian equivalencies of international education and experience.

The Alliance of Credential Evaluation Services of Canada can refer you to an organization that will complete an assessment of foreign credentials and help you make more informed decisions about hiring and recruiting.

Your local college or university might also be able to help evaluate internationally obtained credentials.

Temporary Foreign Worker Program

Recent improvements to the Temporary Foreign Worker Program make it easier for employers to hire foreign workers to fill critical short-term labour needs when no Canadian citizens or permanent residents are available to fill the position. This site will tell you, as an employer, what you must do to hire foreign workers in Canada.

Provincial Nominee Program

Most Canadian provinces and territories have an agreement with the Government of Canada that allows them to play a direct role in selecting immigrants who want to settle in that province or territory.

Settlement Organizations

This site provides an extensive list of community agencies and settlement organizations that may be able to connect you to internationally trained and educated individuals in different locations across Canada.

Language Training

This site shows you the language services and programs for new Canadians in your region. Language providers can either come on site to your business or offer classes to staff off site who need to improve their communications skills.
