In order to work in regulated occupations in Canada, some foreign-trained workers must have their education and work experience credentials assessed and they may need to obtain additional training and licensing.
To make the process easier on newcomers, the Province of Saskatchewan has made licensing information for more than 20 of its non-health regulated occupations available online. This will help future Saskatchewan residents prepare ahead of time so that they can get settled into the workforce more quickly upon arrival.
"Fact sheets will enable internationally-trained professionals to quickly find accurate information to navigate the licensing process," Saskatchewan Immigration Minister Rob Norris said. "Up-to-date, accurate information on licensing processes will assist newcomers in making informed choices about immigration and employment, and help them settle in our province."
These "Licensing Process Fact Sheets" were created in consultation with provincial regulators. They are available in the 'Working' section of the Going to Saskatchewan web portal (www.immigration.gov.sk.ca/going-to-sask).
