There has been an acute shortage of doctors in Canada and that is why, IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has relieved the rules required to get PR in Canada through Express Entry Programs. The demand for doctors in Canada has increased day by day after the COVID outbreak. In fact, it is the only sector in the Canadian labor market where new jobs are added every day.

The immigration minister of Canada has also announced changes, discussed below, that have made it easier to apply for Canada PR as a doctor. These changes will be important for those physicians who were seen as self-employed and thus, were not eligible for Canada Express Entry. Therefore, steps have been taken to aid doctors already in Canada and on a temporary basis to become permanent residents.

Let us help you Apply for Canada PR as a Doctor.

Canada received more than 8,600 applications for temporary and permanent residency from all around the world in 2022, particularly for the health sector. IRCC issued work permits for more than 2,500 doctors, 620 nurses, and 550 nurses’ assistants.

New Rules for Foreign Doctors in Canada to Become Permanent Residents

Sean Fraser, the Immigration Minister, has announced that if the candidate has a minimum of one year of work experience abroad or in Canada, they will be eligible for Express Entry Program. He added that being self-employed does not conclude that a candidate is ineligible for permanent residency.

Earlier the rules for doctors in Canada were making it challenging for them to qualify for Express Entry as they often use a “fee-for-service” payment model. This was way different than the normal employer-employee relationship. Therefore, the doctors residing in Canada temporarily were seen as self-employed on paper. Hence, they were ineligible.

Foreign doctors living in Canada have been a great resource for the local community and have taken care of the aging population. With this change, doctors will be welcome to settle in Canada.

Changes to Express Entry Rules 

There are going to be some major changes to the Express Entry Program in 2023. IRCC, with Bill C-19, will get more authority to target candidates applying for Canada PR on their work experience, skill set, language skills, etc. rather than issuing ITA’s to candidates based on just CRS scores.
