  11. Testimonials “I believe IQR issues are too complex and cross too many areas to be taken on by one group, collaboration & integration of work is essential and the multi-stakeholder work group model facilitates this.” “As a result of my participation… I feel more knowledgeable about the issues associated with becoming registered in my professional group than my counterparts in other provinces that don’t have regular communication with their stakeholders.” “Collaboration enhances the knowledge and understanding of the various issues facing internationally educated professionals. It also distributes the workload in dealing and improving the issues.” “The Multi-stakeholder Work Group model is a powerful, proven and practical tool for realizing the fundamental intention of the Fair Registration Practices Act.”

  12. Conclusion • Profession-specific Multi-stakeholder Work Groups = an effective strategy for addressing complex challenges of IQR - Barriers identified and removed - Innovative programs incubated & developed • But having all key players at the same table also facilitates the Alternative Careers Agenda • Effective forums to explore, brainstorm, research, identify skills transferability, create pathways and disseminate information about alternative careers
