Canada remains a popular destination and place to work for nurses and other members of the medical profession.
Canada's publicly funded health care system is best described as an interlocking set of ten provincial and three territorial health insurance plans. Known to Canadians as "medicare", the system provides access to universal, comprehensive coverage for medically necessary hospital and physician services.
While Canada has one of the highest standards of living in the world, Canada also has a shortage of nurses, especially in the more rural and remote areas of Canada. Being such a large country, it faces similar challenges as Australia in the delivery of health services.
Canada has one of the world's highest living standards. One of the best ways to experience Canada is through the outdoors - it is a country of stunning natural beauty. While a passion for hockey is helpful, it is not neccessary to fit in with the locals. Canadians are well known as friendly and welcoming people. If you are relocating to Quebec you will need to speak French, outside of Quebec English is the most common language, even though Canada is officially bilingual.
Canada offers a great quality of life and the ability to balance work and pleasure. Enjoy the lifestyle and the beautiful natural surroundings.
