Foreign Qualification Recognition

Foreign Qualification Recognition Home


Foreign Qualification Recognition (FQR) is the process of verifying that the education and job experience obtained in another country are equal to standards in Canada.

13 health professions in Yukon are regulated. If you want to work in one of these professions, you will need to be certified and registered for the occupation. This process is managed by bodies called regulatory authorities. Each regulated occupation has different standards, and each one has a regulatory authority to establish and uphold these standards. The regulatory authorities will assess your qualifications for certification and registration. This is called the FQR assessment process.


Yukon is not currently accepting applications for a limited family or specialist license.

This means that International Medical Graduates must meet the requirements listed on the Medical Profession Licensing Requirements in Yukon.
