Government Calls for Expressions of Interest to Help Newcomers Secure Employment

Allan Hawkins, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, called for the second round of Expressions of Interest for projects that facilitate the assessment and recognition of foreign qualifications.

Eligible applicants include regulatory authorities with responsibility for regulating occupations in Newfoundland and Labrador, organizations serving immigrants, and educational institutions. Other stakeholders may be considered, however, the regulatory authority must be a partner in the project. Applications will be accepted until September 25, 2017.
