Insight into IEP Conference

This is a unique event to connect and network between the prospective internationally educated professionals and the Canadian employers.

Every year Canada welcomes International professions to come and work and be part of this great successful nation. The IEP conference plays an influential part connecting the IEP’s with the employers who are looking for new resources to come and work for them.

 What? An Overview

The IEP Conference is a unique Canadian initiative for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) taking interactive learning, economic development, and stakeholder awareness to unprecedented levels. Every participant can engage in a myriad of career and personal development experiences guided and encouraged every step of the way by subject matter experts from licensing bodies, educational institutions, professional associations, skilled facilitators and successful IEPs. Hundreds of previous attendees herald this free event for IEPs as a “not to be missed” initiative, offering an innovative, highly focused and productive platform for converting career dreams into practical action plans for rewarding employment.

Why? Canada’s Employment ‘Puzzle’

The IEP Conference is a unique forum offering unparalleled connection opportunities and much more! Many newcomers in search of meaningful careers find it difficult to access the Canadian job market. Possessing the necessary skills is just the first piece of the puzzle.

The ultimate goal is to connect the skills, enthusiasm and potential of this unique labour pool with relevant stakeholders.
