On September 26, 2011, the Association for New Canadians through its AXIS Career Services Division hosted the International Qualifications Network (IQN) Early Adopter Information Session, presented by Citizenship and Immigration`s Foreign Credentials Referral Office (FCRO). The International Qualifications Network Website is a new initiative spearheaded by FCRO to support the Pan-Canadian Framework for the assessment and recognition of foreign credentials. The website has been developed to provide a platform for showcasing international qualifications assessment and recognition promising practices from across Canada and internationally. It provides an opportunity for subject-matter experts to share information, knowledge and lessons learned with anyone having similar interests in this area. Finally, the IQN Website helps organizations involved in foreign qualifications recognition to exchange innovative practice and build cooperative networks.

 

 

A number of stakeholders from St. John`s, including government and business representatives, regulatory bodies, sector councils, post-secondary institutions, and community organizations, attended the session led by Allain Lauzon and Alexandra Normandin from the Foreign Credentials Referral Office (CIC).

 

 

The IQN Website will be officially launched later this Fall.
