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.

The deadline for all proposals is now 11:59:59 a.m. (i.e., prior to 12:00 Noon) on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.

Requests for Institutional approvals should be received no less than 3 days prior to the posted Sponsor deadline.
