I hope this percentage continues to grow. Its something like the supply and demand chain yet they are doing nothing to fill the demand part up. I understand some of their concerns that International Medical Grads “may” not be as qualified as grads from Canada so they shouldn’t work in Canada. However if there is a need for Doctors then give the ones from abroad the opportunity to prove themselves.
When I say “may not be as qualified as grads from Canada” this is something I completely disagree with. I think International grads are superb. I have seen some of them personally work 10 times harder than some of my USA medical student friends due to the fact that they know it will be much more challenging for them to come work in the states or Canada.
