A recent report from Statistics Canada showed that there are more healthcare job vacancies than ever before. In August of 2022, there were 152,000 vacant healthcare and social assistance positions. Immigrants fill many healthcare positions in Canada. In fact, 36% of physicians and 25% of registered nurses were born outside the country. However, it can be difficult for foreign-trained medical professionals to get the proper licensing from Canadian authorities, which makes it hard for them to find work in the healthcare system.
