Section 3: The Professional Integration Process

The professional recognition process is intricately connected with the immigration process and not all of our respondents started to prepare for professional recognition while still in their countries of origin. Applying from abroad or from within Canada each present their own unique challenges and complexities. Moreover, while immigrants whose English or French skills are good can start professional integration even before they land in Canada, those individuals who do not speak English or French very well often have to postpone their integration until they gain sufficient language competency. Our findings show that those individuals who started preparing for integration earlier, usually had better chances of obtaining employment in Canada. We found this to be more common among IENs than with IMGs and ITMs. The different routes to licensure are described below, along with the types of associated assistance.
