TORONTO, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - OPAS, The Office for Partnerships for Advanced
Skills, in partnership with Ontario universities, will lead a government-
funded initiative to help internationally trained professionals meet the
requirements for jobs that match their qualifications.
The first phase of the project involves compiling research on the
barriers that internationally trained professionals face and consulting with
organizations that work with them. A call for proposals from universities to
address the identified obstacles will then be issued.
This project will involve a partnership of universities, industry,
professional regulatory bodies and community organizations and will contribute
to a well skilled workforce for Ontario by assisting a highly qualified, yet
underutilized segment of society to more fully realize its potential.
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities is investing $638,750
in this initiative over the next three years.

"Ontario's goal is to be a leader in higher education," said Mary Anne
Chambers, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities. "It's important
that the resources of the province's postsecondary education system be
available to help internationally trained individuals continue their careers
in Ontario."

Each year, Ontario receives more than 120,000 immigrants, about
58 per cent of all immigrants to Canada. Of these, over 70 per cent of working
age adults are highly skilled with postsecondary education or training. By the
next decade, immigration is expected to account for the majority of Ontario's
labour force growth.

OPAS is a partnership of universities and industry in which these two
important partners address issues related to skills and learning, labour
market issues, and the effective transfer of knowledge to enterprise.
