Canada should speed the recognition of foreign medical credentials

Canada needs to take full advantage of the talents and skillsets of immigrants, especially in healthcare. According to Statistics Canada, only 36.5% of new immigrants holding a foreign nursing degree work as registered nurses, while only 41.1% with medical degrees from abroad have found employment as doctors. Even though Canada currently faces a shortage of healthcare professionals on the frontline, bureaucratic and professional barriers prevent too many from entering relevant medical fields. As a result, many new immigrants are stuck in lower-paying jobs that need to recognize their skills.
