International Symposium

2024 International Symposium  |  December 3-5, 2024

With a continued and increasing global movement of skilled professionals, it is critical that regulators adapt and find ways to facilitate this mobility while upholding standards and public protection. The inaugural International Symposium will explore the multifaceted challenges and opportunities of international workforce mobility and the evolving role of the regulator in a global context, examining the issue from the perspectives of both sending and receiving countries.  

The multi-day symposium will feature expert panels, case study presentations, and facilitated discussions. Attendees will have opportunities to share initiatives from their jurisdictions and engage in substantive dialogue on addressing mobility challenges. An overarching goal is to identify concrete steps regulators can take to improve international workforce integration while fulfilling their public protection mandate. Join us for this comprehensive symposium to gain valuable knowledge, share best practices, and collaborate with regulatory professionals from around the world. Together, we can enhance the mobility of the international workforce and strengthen the role of the regulator in fostering a diverse, inclusive, and competent global professional community.
