Multi-Stakeholder Work Groups
To build a fair system for assessing and recognizing international qualifications, ISANS leads Multi-stakeholder Work Groups. Each work group focuses on a specific profession. Their purpose is to make sure pathways are fair, unnecessary requirements are removed and programs are developed to help skilled immigrants get licensed and working in their fields.
Each work group includes representatives from the regulatory body, government, educational institutions, professional associations, employers, unions and ISANS. The groups also include representatives of internationally educated immigrants. In this way, your voice is heard, your concerns are expressed and your ideas brought to the table.
