Lara said:I just posted about this on the general residency board. In my case I was born and raised in Montreal but am studying medicine in the US. Unfortunately I'm going into peds, of which there are only 3-5 CaRMS spots at McGill (probably 1/3 of a comparable program in the States). This is dictated by the government. Obviously that's not enough manpower, so they've made agreements with Middle-East countries like Saudi Arabia to import residents outside the match. Nothing against them, but it's pretty frustrating. The fact is that even though I'm eligible for the first round, it's very unlikely I'll get in competing against Canadian grads who also want Montreal.

I don't know about McGill, but I know Quebec is actively looking for doctors and are going as far as selecting and training IMG's because of the shortage, so they may be some opportunity for you to get into a Residency Program in Quebec.
Check out the Government Site under the heading Consensus reached by Qu?bec and the F?d?ration des m?decins sp?cialistes du Qu?bec, there's a press release, but it's in French and I don't know French!
You can also contact the Federation for further information.
Hope this is of some help!
