Ontario and Alberta Partnering to Create More Opportunities for Internationally Trained Skilled Workers

  • Ontario needs hundreds of thousands of additional skilled trades workers over the next decade to build homes, hospitals and highways.
  • That is why the Governments of Ontario and Alberta are partnering to create more opportunities for internationally trained skilled workers by signing a a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to define a framework for collaboration on international credential recognition and post-journeyperson certification.
  • This framework will assess international credentials against the apprenticeship programs in Ontario and Alberta, helping to address gaps in the skilled labour market and fill openings in high-demand fields.
  • Working together with Alberta, we’re sharing knowledge and expertise on international credential recognition, removing barriers to skilled workers filling in-demand jobs and building our communities.
