In Canada, the need for physicians has tripled. Particularly after the COVID-19 epidemic, it is the only sector of the Canadian labor market where new positions are added virtually daily. The employment of physicians and surgeons in Canada as a whole is anticipated to increase by 13% between 2016 and 2026. This is quicker than the industry average in every way.

A different procedure from the standard ones must be followed if you are an Indian intending to apply for Canada PR as a Doctor. You must satisfy Canada's requirements for educational attainment. Check the World Directory of Medical Schools to see if your university is included, and then apply for a Medical Council of Canada license.

Step 2: Be prepared for your medical examination

IMGs can use the Medical Council of Canada Self-Administered Evaluating Examination to gauge their preparation for the Medical Council of Canada Evaluating Examination (MCCEE) (SAE - EE). IMGs who take the SAE-EE will be provided with a percentile chart that compares their performance to the outcomes attained by other MCCEE candidates as well as the number of questions successfully answered. When applying, fees should be verified.

Step 3: Submit your resume

Before coming to Canada, IMGs can create a secure professional electronic portfolio of their qualifications via the MCC's Physician Credentials Repository. IMGs have the option to request that provincial or territorial medical regulatory agencies, certifying, and qualifying organizations see their portfolio in the Repository.

Step 4: When applying, fees should be verified.

To apply for a residency position through the Canadian Resident Matching Service, IMGs must pass the MCCEE. Over 500 locations in more than 70 countries offer the MCCEE. IMGs may apply to the Medical Council of Canada for an exemption from the MCCEE if they have received Canadian or American board specialist certification. When applying, fees should be verified.
