Expanded National Newcomer Navigation Network to help internationally educated health care professionals
Newcomers are essential to Canada’s short-term recovery and long-term prosperity, including in the health care sector. As we continue to welcome newcomers who bring the essential skills we need for our economy to thrive, settlement services play a key role in helping them to succeed. Building on the success of the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario’s (CHEO’s) National Newcomer Navigation Network (N4), Marie-France Lalonde, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, today announced close to $1.5 million to promote sector collaboration and information sharing of foreign qualification and credential recognition requirements for internationally educated health care professionals. This expanded project will help internationally educated health care professionals fill key positions in the health care labour market. It will also enable N4 to serve as a platform where newcomers and internationally educated health care professionals can find information on foreign qualification and credential recognition in all provinces and territories outside Quebec.
