We’ve done it again
As part of the Bridging project, the NBSMLT has created a profile on the International Qualifications Network (IQN). IQN is a website created by the Government of Canada as part of the Foreign Credentials Referral Office. The Foreign Credentials Referral Office’s purpose is to help foreign trained workers succeed in Canada. The website is dedicated to providing a space for regulators, groups or committees to promote collaboration on information related to the assessment and recognition of international qualifications. It enables members to share information about their own initiatives, and provide feedback on others' initiatives. Being part of this website has enabled the NBSMLT to raise awareness and promote to other groups the NB Bridging Program. As such the NBSMLT was nominated for the IQN awards. The IQN Awards recognize leadership in foreign qualification assessment and recognition in four areas - workplace integration, innovation, engagement or overseas initiatives. We are proud to announce that the NB Medical Laboratory Technologist Bridging Program has received an Honourable mention in the category of Engagement. Our initiative is among 8 others to receive Honourable mentions from a total of 63 nominations. The NBSMLT and the Bridging Program will be highlighted at the IQN Awards Ceremony to be held on March 13, 2013 at the Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Quebec.
