In recent years, Canada has made significant progress in improving its foreign qualification recognition (FQR) processes. But systemic problems continue to impede the integration of skilled immigrants into regulated professions. This 60-minute session will focus on five areas where additional research could help to improve the assessment and admission of internationally educated individuals seeking licensure in Canada.

Specific attention and potential project ideas will be offered for the following topics:

  • The effectiveness of “alternate career” guidance
  • Assessments for mid-career applicants
  • Creating a sustainable approach to “bridging”
  • Improving access for clinical placements pre-licensure
  • Defining the role and responsibility of the modern regulator

Join Keith Johnson, one of Canada’s leading FQR experts, as he outlines what these FQR problems are, their effects, the role of specific research in addressing the problems—and the potential positive outcomes of doing so.
