Expanded National Newcomer Navigation Network to help internationally educated health care professionals

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.

The project will also

  • 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
