I am an American and taking my CNA (certified nursing assistant) class now. I also am very close to graduating with my Associates in Science Degree. So my question is this...
I am wanting to work in Alberta, Canada as a HCA, or a NA, or whatever the equivalent to an American CNA is, and I am needing some advice. I have no idea where to start so a little guidance would be greatly appreciated. I am wondering if
A) If things would be easier with immigration/work permits after I finish my CNA course work or if I could maybe go ahead and try to get things lined out so that I could be ready to possibly accept a job by the time that I finish, which will be the end of March.
B) Where or who do I even contact to figure out what forms and whatnot that I need to fill out, and if I am even eligible for a open work permit, if I need to be sponsored by a certain facility, or what to do? And are there any travel agencies maybe that work with Americans wanting to work in Canada, and would that be a better route to take? If so, can anyone recommend a good one?
