Foreign qualification recognition (FQR)

Foreign qualification recognition (FQR)

FQR processes ensure we fairly and accurately recognize the qualifications and competencies of immigrants.

People from around the world come to Alberta to work and live. They bring a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience that contributes to our workforce and adds to the cultural diversity of our province.

Alberta’s Foreign Qualification Recognition Plan (PDF, 818 KB) includes an Innovation Fund to support stakeholders in developing the tools and resources they need to improve FQR practices.

Getting your credentials assessed

Individuals who need to have their international academic credentials assessed should visit International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS).
