Quebec to recognize Switzerland’s healthcare workers’ credentials

The province of Quebec has signed an agreement with the Swiss government to recognize five groups of healthcare workers who received their training in Switzerland.

Under the mutual recognition agreement for foreign credentials signed June 14, Quebec and Switzerland will each recognize the professional qualifications of one another's dental hygienists,

midwives, social workers, and family therapists, as well as dental appliance and prosthesis technicians. Quebec has one of the most severe labour shortages in Canada. Despite the fact that the

country is presently experiencing a tight job market with an all-time low unemployment rate of 5.1%, Quebec's unemployment rate is even lower, at 3.9 percent.
