Immigrant Accreditation

The re-accreditation challenges facing foreign-trained immigrants are a sub-set of my long-standing research into the labour market integration of immigrants. As part of my affiliation as a Visiting Senior Research Scholar at Statistics Canada, I have accessed census information on specific fields of training that immigrants undertake and the occupations they hold. My research, undertaken with other colleagues, looks at gaps that can exist in training and jobs for foreign-trained immigrants, with particular reference to those who studied engineering and medicine.
