Information about working in Saskatchewan
The Government of Saskatchewan has created a web site area with the information needed to help Internationally Educated Health Professionals become licensed to work in Saskatchewan. For more information go to the Government of Saskatchewan website.
Note: This program is limited to current employees of Prince Albert Parkland Health Region.
Pathways: IEHP Support, Bridging and Integration Project is a strategy funded by Health Canada in collaboration with the SK Ministry of Health which will extend from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2016.
Prince Albert Parkland Health Region aims to support our internationally educated nurses and other internationally educated health care professionals on their paths to professional licensure and ensure they are supported within their workplaces.
This goal can be achieved by:
- Providing information about pathways to licensure, employment and integration into the workforce.
- Offering career exploration and planning for Internationally Educated Health Professionals who are employed with a Saskatchewan Health Region, but not licensed and working in their trained health profession.
- Reducing the gap between international education and qualifications recognized in Canada through referrals to assessments, education, bridging programs and language training programs.
- Employment and training support through mentorship and funding for costs associated with approved assessments and training.
