Ontario's nursing shortage threatens the province’s healthcare system

Ontario's nursing shortage is projected to worsen, with a deficit of 13,200 nurses by the end of this year, increasing to 33,200 by 2032. To address this, Ontario Premier Doug Ford has asked the College of Nurses of Ontario to expedite the recognition of internationally-trained nurses' credentials. Changes to Canada's Federal Skilled Worker program have also expanded the list of eligible occupations to include nurse aides and orderlies. Foreign nationals qualified to work as nurses in Canada can seek jobs and apply for permanent residency through various federal and provincial economic immigration programs.
