This consultation is being organized by community organizations that serve newcomers, immigrants and refugees, to hear the experiences, concerns and suggestions of International Educated Professionals (IEPs) in Manitoba.
The session is open for all IEPs no matter what stage you are are in for your foreign credential recognition process to obtain licensure; licensed, in the process, unsuccessful, or have not gone through the licensure process, all are welcome!
No regulatory bodies nor provincial officials will be present at the meeting. Your individual feedback shared during this session will be anonymized and kept confidential. However, the overall findings from the session will used by community organizations to assess, and propose changes to, Manitoba’s proposed Bill-41: The Fair Registration Practices in Regulated Professions Amendment Act (https://web2.gov.mb.ca/bills/42-3/b041e.php) and to develop a public awareness campaign on the barriers faced by IEP in Manitoba.
Following the consultation we will mail you a $20 honorarium for your participation. Please fill out your mailing information in the registration to receive the honourarium.
If you have any questions or require any accommodations for the session, please contact Jessica Praznik at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you.
