  • streamline the processes for the assessment and recognition of foreign qualifications
  • develop up-to-date, plain language information on FQR processes
  • develop programs that bridge to licensure or to professional certification and prepare internationally trained Albertans to meet our professional standards
  • enhance bridge-to-employment programs to help internationally trained Albertans enter the workforce
  • help employers integrate and retain internationally trained Albertans
