Coming to Canada

There are several steps involved in moving to British Columbia to work as a health professional:

  • You may then apply in person at the nearest Canadian consulate or online for a temporary work permit once the required documentation has been obtained.  
  • You will need to have a medical examination completed by a designated medical practitioner. This may also be required for your spouse and children who will be relocating with you permanently.


You can expect the process - from the time you accept a position to the time you arrive in British Columbia - to take approximately six months.
