MISSION

The purpose of ITP is to help build associations and networks among internationally trained professionals and to encourage constructive dialogue between immigrant professionals, academic institutions, regulatory bodies, industry and government. Our vision is to represent interests and perspectives of internationally trained professionals, including professionals who immigrated to Canada, Canadians who obtained their degrees in other countries and all foreign professionals in Canada. We believe that we bring a new point of view, and we want to get organized in order to be able to benefit our community in a practical way.
