The Capital Region
Our Edmonton location offers resources to empower people in many ways. The 1-Step Settlement Program assists those who have made Alberta their new home and are faced with such challenges as employment, school enrollment, housing, and childcare. Newcomers to Alberta can also benefit from the Centre for Skilled and Internationally Trained Professionals which assists individuals through the licensure and credential process in order to become employed in their chosen profession. Through seminars, lectures and counselling, you will receive guidance on completing your licensure examination or gain knowledge of Canadian industry standards. For newcomers trained internationally as a Pharmacist, the International Pharmacy Bridging Program assists individuals to pass licensure exams, attend structure practical training and gain their license to practice in Alberta.
