Canadian Immigration Pathways for Health Care Workers
According to data from the government of Canada, since 2015, over 22,400 people, including nearly just over 3,600 physicians and 8,600 nurses have become permanent residents through Express Entry and the Provincial Nominee Programme. The Government of Canada has made changes to immigration law through Bill C 19, which builds on the success of the express entry programme and allows the government to better respond to the economic needs of the country by selecting immigrants that will fill labour needs.
The provisions of Bill C 19 came into force upon Royal Assent on June 23, 2022, and the government will be implementing the changes following changes to its internal IT systems. International healthcare workers interested in migrating should consider Canada because of its friendly immigration system and the government’s support and investment in integrating these workers into the labour market.
According to statistics Canada in the first quarter of this year, nearly one in every five job vacancies in Canada was in the field of health care and social assistance. Many of these vacancies in the healthcare sector go unfilled. Today, a persistent healthcare worker storage continues to ripple the country. The federal and provincial governments have been considering solutions to the healthcare crisis, and part of that plan is to register more internationally educated health professionals.
