Bridge Training Programs for Internationally Trained Individuals 2008-2009

The Ontario government supports programs that can help newcomers get their license or certificate in their profession or trade so that they can work in Ontario.

These programs have been put together by employers, colleges and universities, occupational regulatory bodies, and community organizations. They are called ‘Bridging Programs.’ Each Bridging program is different and may provide you with:
• An assessment of your education and skills
• A clinical or workplace experience
• Skills training or targeted academic training programs
• Preparation for a license or certification examination
• Language training for your profession or trade
• Individual learning plans to identify any added training you may need
