Canada unveils Nursing Retention Toolkit to tackle healthcare worker burnout

Canada addresses challenges faced by nurses, including stress and burnout, with the launch of the Nursing Retention Toolkit program. Focused on eight core themes, the toolkit offers initiatives for employers to improve retention, aligning with the country's efforts to recruit healthcare professionals through immigration programs. The federal government's $200 billion investment in healthcare, announced in last year's budget, includes support for worker retention and recruitment. Ottawa commits an additional $86 million to 15 projects, streamlining foreign credential recognition for approximately 6,600 internationally-educated health professionals. The funding targets critical occupations like nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, laboratory technicians, and respiratory therapists, facilitating virtual exams for midwives before arriving in Canada.
