1. Extremely unlikely, you will have to write and pass the Canadian exams, and then get a residency. Less than 6% of foreign trained physicians ever get a residency, which you require to practice. Really look into as you may never practice in Canada.tin said:Hi there...I'm a medical doctor for 10 yrs.in india and presently,working in saudi .Now, I'm planning to apply as an immigrant in canada..will i get job right away in canada related to my proffesion ?..thanks
The certain facts about canada are very attractive like best natural resources with cleaner places to live and high standards of living etc.ajain09 said:I just came across an interesting article/blog from a guy appealing to Indians, just thought of sharing here as it looks appropriate. http://canadapr.spaces.live.com/
ajain, finding a job depends on sooo many factors that search-time statistics are entirely useless. That said, the CIC asks that you come with approximately CAN 10,000, which is enough for at least six months.ajain09 said:Is there any where/websites/forums can we get some rough idea approx time frame when Canada Immigrants get job after they landed? May be like a month or 2 month or 6 months etc?
Maybe they can't do that legally but if they have a choice between a person who had unknown education and unknown experience from a country they are not familiar with and a person who has education and experience from Canada, they usually pick the latter. It is harder for somebody fresh off the boat to get good opportunites. Not impossible but being the new guy, you might have to settle for a bit less than you would have otherwise. You have to be ready to prove yourself a bit more than the next guy.eduardoF said:Also, notice that as a legal immigrant, employers cannot discriminate against you on the basis of national origin. You may not get a job due to the languag barriers, or to inadequate qualification, but you cannot be denied a job because you are an immigrant.
that would actually be a difficult job to get, since they usually require fluency in the language...foreverwaiting said:Could someone suggest the various options we have in terms of some white collar jobs we could land easily on arrival to Canada? Your response much appreciated!
P.S. Someone suggested call center jobs. Can you add on to the list?
Leon, I actually thought of India, and of Morroco (for French), and then I changed my mind. English is an official language of India, and everyone "learns" it, so technically, they're "fluent". Even though, true, it's hard to understand them sometimes!Leon said:Not always. I've had call centre agents who could barely speak English. They are fairly low paid jobs so it's hard to get people for them but they can't pay more if they want to stay in business because they are competing with India. Many companys have outsourced their call centres to India.
