Internationally trained professionals receive their education and certifications in another country often face a common challenge: How to re-establish a career in a related field?

These questions will be addressed in this event:

  • What are other careers I can explore while leveraging my foreign credentials?
  • Is getting relicensed and recertified the only option? What are the alternatives?

We would like to invite graduate students or immigrant professionals who:

–  Have recently immigrated to Canada

–  Are seeking jobs in a new field


At the networking session you will:

–  Meet fellows who are currently working in different fields

–  Broaden your Canadian professional network
