Ontario Bridge Training projects help internationally trained individuals obtain certification/registration and find jobs in their field without having to duplicate their previous education.

Getting a License projects develop and deliver training and services that assist internationally trained individuals to obtain certification/registration or to complete a significant component of the certification/registration process for their profession (e.g., obtain required clinical or work experience, meet language proficiency requirements, obtain necessary academic/skills training). These projects are strategic interventions targeted at one specific sector or occupation. Projects in this category are strongly encouraged to offer or refer participants to a continuum of services that will improve participant licensure and employment outcomes.

Application Details:

The Ministry encourages partnerships for project delivery wherever appropriate. The Ontario Government supports projects that improve access to licensure and/or employment for internationally trained individuals in regulated and non-regulated professions. Organizations can apply for grants that support these projects through a competitive Invitation for Proposal process.
