This article investigates the issue of the extent to which migrants in Canada and Germany are able to use the qualifications and professional experiences they have acquired abroad on the domestic labour market. The information presented is based on case studies in the healthcare sector conducted in both countries. A related question is how the recognition process and the significance of occupational experience differ in the two countries and how these two aspects are determined. The results provide indications as to whether and in which ways the integration of foreign skilled workers in Germany and Canada can be improved.
