Tourism skills are easily transferable and this eases workforce integration for the internationally-trained professional.

People who have extensive experience in the tourism and hospitality industry do not need to go back to college to enter the workforce. They just need to demonstrate a clear understanding of Canadian standards and their knowledge of the Canadian workplace.

To integrate rapidly into the Canadian workforce, industry experts recommend certification through the emerit National Occupation Certification course at the managerial level. This is offered through the Canadian Tourism Human Resources Council, and in Ontario, through OTEC.

This is an extensive course that may take up two months and covers areas such as human resources management, Canadian legislation and business planning.

Certification programs add Canadian credentials to the resume of an internationally trained professional.
