Programme Reconnaissance des compétences et accès aux ordres professionnels (Program for skill recognition and access to professional orders)

This program offers financial assistance in order to develop projects that help immigrants obtain recognition of the skills they acquired abroad, so that they can quickly and successfully contribute to Québec’s prosperity. The program’s objective is to help immigrants integrate into Québec through jobs that match their education by means of new approaches to recognizing the skills they acquired abroad.

The program is intended for immigrants who have acquired skills abroad and who must obtain legal authorization in order to practise their profession or trade within a professional order or an organization that controls access to this profession or trade.

  • Organizations that control access to an industry, including regulated professions and trades, and that are constituted in accordance with a Québec law or regulation 
  • Non-profit or cooperative organizations whose charter objectives are compatible with the overall objective of the Program

Types admissible projects

  • Creating online information tools on how to gain admission to a professional order or other regulatory organization
  • Creating common standards for the skills required to practise a regulated profession or trade in Québec
  • Developing refresher training for recognizing the skills of immigrants
  • Research projects that identify the difficulties involved in recognizing the skills of immigrants and finding potential solutions to these difficulties
