Bridging to Accreditation | Professions North

Many highly skilled and well-educated international individuals come to Canada with the aspiration of pursuing the same career path they started in their homeland.

However, many professions in Ontario require formal registration or licensing with a regulatory body that ensures practitioners have the appropriate educational and work experience to do the job in conformity with established standards. If you want to work in a regulated profession in which you have a prior background in your homeland, Professions North/Nord can help to bridge the gap between education, experience and employment

Through our university partners, we offer online/distance courses toward certification in , specifically for the CGA, CA, CMA and CFP designations. This will provide appropriate academic training to meet degree equivalency or competency requirements for certification/registration with those accreditation bodies.

We assist you in developing professional relationships through mentorships, placements and job shadowing, to satisfy requirements for certification/registration and to prepare you for employment in your profession in Ontario.
