The Prince Edward Island (PEI) officials travelled nearly 10,000 km in March to recruit nurses in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. PEI’s director of Workforce Planning, Recruitment, and Pharmaceutical Services states that over 30 nurses are expected to immigrate to the province by early 2024. Healthcare authorities across Canada are facing severe labour shortages. In Prince Edward Island, the current job vacancy rate at Health PEI is approximately 20%. As a result of the nursing shortage on Prince Edward Island, many nurses are reluctant to accept additional shifts.
