Honorable members and respected colleagues please i want to use this ample opportunity to ask the following questions.
Can an optometrist in Nigeria:
  1. practice as an optometrist in Canada?
  2. practice as an assistant optometrist in Canada?
  3. carryout his/her resident programs in Canada?
  4. carryout his/her masters and PhD programs in Canada?
Please answer with detailed explanation. Thanks and God bless, Osheeee!

1) If they obtain permanent residency or citizenship and can pass a prior learning assessment, they can do a bringing program.
2) Anyone can practice as an assistant. You don't need any qualifications
3) No
4) If you apply and they accept you

Thanks Namams, I really appreciate the information you provided. I will also like to know why they can't do their resident program there? God bless you.
