Major Changes to the Temporary Foreign Workers Program for Canada
14th, Jan 2022
The Government of Ontario is going to deploy internationally educated nurses to hospitals and long-term care homes that face staffing shortages due to the pandemic.
On January 11, 2022, Health Minister Christine Elliott announced that international nurses who have applied to practice in Ontario "will have the opportunity to meet their applications requirements by working in healthcare settings under the supervision of a regulated healthcare provider."
She also said that there already were more than 1,200 applicants who expressed their interest. The Government will match these applicants with hospitals and long-term care homes and allow them to work in the province.
