About CARE Centre

CARE Centre for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) was created in 2001 to address a major gap in Ontario’s healthcare human resources strategy. While CARE Centre has been primarily focused on supporting nurses arriving in Ontario from other parts of the world, it is now recognized as a unique Canadian enterprise that focuses on supporting Internationally Educated Nurses in their journey to become qualified to practice in Canada.
