David Nurse in Canada's Immigration & Citizenship Bulletin | Paging All International Doctors: 5 Practical Tips for Recruiting International Staff Physicians
May 29, 2018
By David Nurse, at McInnes Cooper
There’s no shortage of media coverage about a doctor shortage in Canada and the resulting impact on Canada’s healthcare system. Most non-Canadian clinical physicians enter Canada for work based, at least initially, on a work permit issued pursuant to a Labour Market Impact Assessment (a.k.a. LMIA). Canadian staff physician recruiters considering foreign candidates must understand the LMIA process and how to obtain an LMIA to hire a non-Canadian physician. McInnes Cooper Immigration Lawyer David Nurse takes a look at the LMIA requirements for foreign physicians to enter Canada, and shares five practical tips for obtaining an LMIA to recruit international staff physicians in his article, “Paging All International Doctors: 5 Practical Tips for Recruiting International Staff Physicians” (PDF) as published by Thomson Reuters’ Canada’s Immigration & Citizenship Bulletin (29 Imm. & Cit., No. 2, 2018).
