    You can try applying for a job in long term care and see what kind of a response you get. There is a list of long term care facilities that may have job postings on the OLTCA website http://www.oltca.com/en/members/empl...rjobsites.html

    Why do you think any facility in Canada would be hiring offshore when Canadian new grads can't find work or if they can find work it's on a casual basis? People can't be brought in unless the facility has documentation that there is no Canadian willing to take the job.

    I don't know ledzil's immigration plans, I was simple responding to ledzil's request for help in finding jobs in Toronto and submitting a resume and inquiry to potential employers is a reasonable way to determine job prospects.

    A quick look at the posters history would have filled you in. New Jersey, Australia, and Canada have all been considered by this poster who is still overseas.

    False hope is not what people want.

    All the poster is asking is some information about job prospects. It's immaterial what countries she has considered before. If there are really no job openings, then let her find out herself.

    No, actually it should be factored into the equation. For at least the last six months Canadian nurses have been posting about hiring freezes, new grads unable to find work in their own region, and nurses who arrived on two year work permits facing the prospect of returning home.

    For anyone to think they can find a job in our current economy by sending resumes to nursing homes is giving out false hope. If any time has been spent on these boards or the Canadian governments website, it's been well documented that jobs are few and far between and for an employer to hire offshore there needs to be documented evidence that they've tried really hard to find a nurse already living in Canada to do the job.

    When posters post on multiple overseas threads about looking for work in that country it is simple to determine that there is no real desire to live and settle in a country, just a place to earn a wage. The Canadian forums were flooded by posters in 2007 (well before our time) with nurses from the Phillipines wanting to work in Canada because they'd been told it was easier to get into the US from Canada than the Phillipines. No desire to settle, just work and leave.

    You posted it yourself, there are still jobs no matter how far and between they are. At the end of the day, you can only tell them what the situation is but it is still up to them whether they want to go further or not.Unless Canada starts closing it's doors to immigrants.

    You're seeing what you want to see. There is no offshore recruiting going on at the current time. The western provinces stopped the recruiting after the debacle with Capital Health.

    Hello everyone!!
    I recently received my eligibility to write the CRNE from SRNA. I need help from anyone who knows where to apply for employment. I have over 15 years of hospital experience in ER...please share!
    Happy holidays..
    May I ask when did you submit your application for eligibility to SRNA? I submitted my application June last year and until now I'm still waiting for the checklist.

    Thank you.

    Good day.
    I am applying for an immigrant in Canada. Fortunately, i have our medical request already. If everything will go smoothly, i am planning to fly to canada early next year. but before that, i am planning to apply as a registered nurse in Ontario, Canada while i am here in the philippines.
    i understand that we need to apply to take the nursing exam (CRNE) in the regulatory body of the chosen province. In my case, i chose Toronto, Ontario since my sister is residing there. So i need to apply to the College of Toronto to take the exam right?

    i visited their site and initial registration was shown there:

    Initial registration
    According to the legislation governing the College — the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA) and the Nursing Act, 1991 — you must register with the College of Nurses and be a member in good standing in order to practise as a nurse in Ontario. The initial registration fee is $171.73. There is no expiration on your Certificate of Registration. To remain a member of the College in the following years, you must pay the annual fee of $122.66.


    My question is, do i have to pay the $171.73 as my first step? Please correct me if i am wrong. Your reply will be highly appreciated.

    There is no such thing as the College of Toronto you are applying to the College of Nurses of Ontario. You are not applying to sit CRNE but to be a registered license nurse in Ontario

    You will need to complete requirements for International Trained Nurse

    Fees including taxes are as I see it on their website as
    Application for RN IEN $678.00
    Registration for CRNE $464.69
    Once passed CRNE license $184.81

    Annual membership when renewing and maintaining license is $132.01

    Fees €“ College of Nurses of Ontario

    HI! I'm from the philippines and just migrated last July this year and will submit the assessment forms to CNO before the month ends. I was wondering what requirements to pass. My mom's friend told her that I need to pass forms B1 and B2 signed by PRC. I don't have these forms in the assessment package that CNO sent me. Please enlighten me. And what's the next process? I hope I can hear some replies and detailed responses because I don't have anyone to ask to. Thanks. May God bless u!

    Because your post does not have any practical, clinical or other connection or appeal for the average nurse in Canada I have moved it into an existing thread that discusses the topic you've brought forth. The Canadian Forum is not for discussions about immigration issues; most nurses working in Canada have no idea what your'e talking about.
