Office of the Manitoba Fairness Commissioner

Between 2009-13, the OMFC supported the development of projects in two main categories: Service Delivery and Development and Support.


Service Delivery projects provided direct programming to internationally educated professionals seeking recognition, in one of three categories: assessment and support; gap training, and orientation and preparation.

Development and Support projects helped regulators make changes so that they could comply with requirements of the Act. Responses included those that helped regulators improve assessment and registration processes, policies, and practices. They also allowed the OMFC to provide support and expertise to regulators.

The following activities were supported by the Office:
