Qualification Recognition (QR) n. the area of work, policy and practice concerned with the recognition of internationally educated professionals’ qualifications. The QR field focuses on activities and stakeholders involved in the recognition of credentials, skills and experience by a competent authority for the purposes of entry into an educational program, trade or profession or for general employment purposes.

Beyond Paper

Manitoba was the first province to approach QR as a systems problem that needed change. The provincial government took a leadership role and moved beyond the standard Credentials Recognition to adopt the new thinking that documents such as degrees or diplomas are not the only way to demonstrate proficiency. Work experience, too, must be taken into account. By changing our terminology and our mindset, we have led the way toward a better understanding of the value experience brings.
