Can anyone give me some idea of how hard it is for IMGs to work in Canada at the moment? I am at med school in the uk and would like to live and work in Toronto. I realise this is a very big and general question but would be really grateful for any tips on the best way to go about doing this, given the current situation. I understand that there are now some 'allocated' spots for IMGs? How can one maximise one's chances of getting one? Some UK students do an intercalated BSc as part of med school, I have this as an option, would something like this be useful when applying to Canada or not really? Would I be competing against Canadian students as well, or only IMGs (because I would basically only get a place in the IMG quota)? Lastly obviously visas are an issue. I don't really want to have to leave Canada again after I get there, so ideally I would be able to go to Canada on a visa which either enables me to stay permanently or which I could convert to one which would then enable me to stay permanently. How likely is this? I would particularly love to hear from any success stories who have made it over there from the UK or elsewhere. Anyway, any help or advice much appreciated... thanks.
