Living the Canadian Dream [Video - 1:36] (2011)

This video offers a brief look at how Engineers Canada, the national licensing body for the profession, works with Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) to assess the credentials of internationally trained engineers.

In particular, the video focuses on one man who earned a degree in computer engineering in Argentina. Through the University of Manitoba, he takes part in about the Internationally Educated Engineers Qualification (IEEQ) program, which includes eight months of senior-level engineering courses; a four-month co-op placement; and a cultural training component aimed at familiarizing participants with Canadian workplaces.

The program is funded in part by HRSDC’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program.

After successfully completing the program, the man gets a position at the firm where he did his co-op placement.
