Canada needs more nurses
It is not known that nurses can enter Canada without a job offer... Also, Quebec is giving more points for nurses in their assessment. Nurses get 16 points instead of 12 for the training in their former country.
An even more important development is many nursing applicants will not necessarily need to learn French in order to receive enough points to immigrate to that province.
Quebec nurses earn up to $60,000 a year. Some nurses earn up to $315,000 through overtime work and benefits.
Further more the Canadian Constitution grants all permanent residents and citizens the right and freedom to live and work in any of Canada’s provinces.
The forecast is that up to 60,000 nurses will be needed by 2022 in order to fill labour shortages. Such a large number is not trained in Quebec.
Nurses can work as nurse practitioners, researchers, technicians, specialized nurses or as instructors.
