New and Exciting!!! For the first time in its history, the IEP Conference will be a two day event. On the second day, IEP Conference Registrants will be able to attend an Hiring Expo where they will be able to discuss job opportunities directly with employers.

The IEP Conference Overview

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. Connecting with employers who are hiring, gaining Canadian work experience and adapting to Canadian business cultures are also essential ingredients towards securing a better job. The ultimate goal is to connect the skills, enthusiasm and potential of this unique labour pool with relevant stakeholders.
