Canada is pumping money into a program to help the engineering profession better assess and recognize foreign engineering credentials.

Jane Stewart, Minister of Human Resources Development Canada, said the federal government is giving the Canadian Council of Professional Engineers (CCPE) $215,000.

“Ours is a country built on immigration,” said Stewart. “We must make it easier for talented immigrants to put their expertise to use. Improving the recognition of foreign credentials is an important step in this direction.”
