Hi, I am from Bangladesh. Completed my MBBS and pursuing my MS in gynaecology.

If I want to move to Canada as a doctor, should I need to sit for any licensing exam or can I start job as a doctor there?

Also, after completing my MS, I can work as a consultant here in Bangladesh. So, If I move after completing my MS will Canada accept that degree too? and allow me to work as consultant.

Honestly, it is very difficult for foreign trained medical professionals to practice in Canada, especially for Asia educated doctors and medical professionals.

Once you move to Canada with an MS from Bangladesh, realistically, you will not get a job as a medical consultant in Canada, due to lack of a valid license and "canadian experience", however, once you obtain your PR, you are free to move back to Bangladesh and practice there. You will only be able to get job in Canada as medical consultant or practice medicine, once you get a license from the province.
