Quebec announced the opening of a new portal to facilitate the evaluation and recognition of foreign educational credentials.
Funded by Quebec Immigration, this portal – QualificationsQuebec.com helps the users to check if their occupation needs any regulatory licensing and what would be the requirements to assess their education, work experience, and training. The portal will also indicate the respective accredited organizations that are responsible to provide these assessments.
Another salient feature of this portal would be to highlight job opportunities and prospects for the selected profession within the Quebec region.
The portal goes a step further and offers the assistance of counselors who can assist the visitors with their search for information.
The portal is available in French and English languages and is equipped to provide information on a vast number of occupations.
