CBC is jumping the gun.

December 1, 2009

Here’s the headline:

Foreign workers to get credentials quicker.

Not necessarily.  They will just know “whether their credentials will allow them to work in Canada”.  Or won’t.

Here’s how it could work.  A foreign trained doctor could be told, within a year of applying, that their credentials will allow them to work after meeting certain standards.

We don’t want some professionals to be evaluated within a year.  That is not always enough time to verify and evaluate foreign qualifications.  There are ways to meet the one year guideline.  Just say “no” quicker.  Eliminate everyone with even slightly questionable qualifications and focus efforts on those closest to Canadian qualifications.


I’d rather have a long wait to see a qualified physician than a short wait to see an incompetent one.


While we’re on the subject, maybe someone could explain to me why a professional would move to a country without absolute certainty that they would be able to work in that country.  I wouldn’t.
