The College of Dental Technologists of Ontario, in collaboration with the Canadian Alliance of Dental Technology Regulators (CADTR), has received funding from the Government of Canada’s Foreign Credential Recognition Program (FCRP) for close to $575,000 over two years to support the Access to Dental Technology Project (ADT). Led by CDTO, this pan-Canadian project will help reduce barriers to employment in Dental Technology for internationally trained newcomers to Canada.

The project aims to ensure that Canada has the educated and skilled workforce needed to support professional and economic growth by expediting the assessment and licensure processes of Internationally Educated Dental Technology Professionals (IEDTPs) to practise the profession of dental technology in Canada.
