Evaluation of the Multi-Stakeholder Work Group Model Project

Barriers related to international qualifications assessment and recognition (IQAR), (particularly in regulated professions and trades) are complex. Provinces across the country have had to address these challenges so that skilled newcomers to Canada may enter the occupations they have been trained in as efficiently as possible, while still protecting the public interest by maintaining appropriate standards of practice. The Multi-stakeholder Work Group model is unique to Nova Scotia and has been recognized nationally as a best practice to address international qualifications challenges.
