Canada Grants Foreign Healthcare Professionals
With the intention to help overseas healthcare professionals join the Canadian work force, the federal government has granted $8.2 million funds to the Ontario Government for two years to provide essential training for foreign health care workers, stated Health Minister, Rona Ambrose. 

Additionally, Ottawa is giving $150 000 to the Medical Council of Canada for two years to prepare orientation materials for graduates going through a practice-ready evaluation.      

Ambrose added that thousands of new individuals flock to the country over each year, therefore the government wants to make sure that they would help doctors as well as nurses to effectively join the country’s workforce. 

Sources stated that the funds will be attributed to HealthForceOntario, which is an alliance between Ministry of health of Ontario and Long-term Care and its Ministry of Training, Universities and colleges. 

Reportedly, the funds will be allocated to three programs such as a Practice-Ready e-Learning Program, which is outlined especially for foreign healthcare professionals to nurture their soft skills. And, Workforce Integration Network program is the second one that is designed to assist managers, coworkers and supervisors to help them integrate into the clinical sites. An Alternative Career Program is the third one that is framed to map overseas graduates with healthcare jobs while they procure licensure.

Apparently, the new schemes are outlined to bridge the gap between the 4.6 m Canadians and 10,000 health care professionals who are facing the intricacies in obtaining licensure or jobs.  

Experts opined that currently Canadian medical schools accept around 3000 students per year, depicting an increase of around 1550 each year. And, almost 3000 new doctors will enter the country for practice. The increasing number of overseas healthcare graduates entering the country will open up more residency spots. 

The Canadian Medical Association is lobbying for a Health Human Resource Infrastructure Fund to increase slots for both undergraduate as well as postgraduate levels in Canadian medical schools, which enables domestic as well as foreign medical graduates to access postgraduate training.
