Manitoba Careers for Internationally Education Professionals Program
The Manitoba Careers for Internationally Educated Professionals (IEPs) Program supports internationally educated professionals towards their goal of working in their professional field in Manitoba.
It provides non-repayable financial assistance to help IEPs with assessment and training costs while pursuing registration in one of Manitoba’s 28 non-nursing self-regulated professions.
To be eligible, individuals must have started the registration process with a Manitoba regulator, and be motivated and able to complete the process in a timely, efficient and continuous manner. For most professions, this means completing the registration process within two years.
Individuals should contact their Manitoba regulator directly to learn about the registration requirements, process, costs and other important information.
