The Fair Access to Regulated Professions Act, 2006, includes:

• A Fair Registration Practices Commissioner who would assess the registration practices of regulated professions and monitor the regulatory bodies’ compliance with the legislation.

• A new Access Centre for Internationally Trained Individuals, to help those trained outside Ontario get the information and referrals they need to work in their profession. It would also serve as a centre for excellence on internships and mentorships for educational institutions, employers, and community agencies.

Other initiatives by the Ontario government include:

• Launching a six-month internship program in the Ontario Public Service and Crown Agencies for internationally trained professionals.

• Doubling the number of training and assessment positions for internationally trained medical graduates.

• Negotiating the first ever Canada-Ontario immigration agreement, which quadruples federal funding for language training and settlement programs to $920 million over five years for Ontario newcomers.

• Creating Ontarioimmigration.ca, which provides up-to-date information for newcomers on everything from Ontario communities to working in professions and trades.
