What's the difference between a MPH and a MSc in Population/Public Health?

I'm thinking that a MPH prepares you for a career right after graduation since there are practicums/internships and a MSc is more for an academic career....

Also, would anyone happen to know how "easy" it is to get a job (in Canada or US) right after graduating with MPH?

Thx

it depends on what you do. im assuming you are in canada. if you do the practicums in your MHSc or MPH degree, you can find work right away. If you are interested in academics, the thesis can be used to go into a phd program. im speaking in very general terms here
