Well, first off, you can't work on a tourist visa in any capacity. If you're caught you working you will be deported and will be refused entrance to Canada for life. So be very careful in how you proceed.
Second, you cannot even have your application for registration assessed without having a passing score on IELTS or CELBAN. These are assessments of fluency in English, which is vitally important in health care professions in Canada. These exams test listening, reading, writing and speaking. For information on IELTS read here: http://www.ielts.org/test_takers_information.aspx
CELBAN information can be found here: CELBAN
If you have trouble understanding the information presented on these two sites it suggests that you will need remediation of your English education in order to pass.
Third, your credentials will be assessed by the College of Nurses of Ontario (International - CNO
) for equivalence to Canadian education. Because you were educated in the Philippines there may be a requirement for you to undergo a substantially equivalent competency assessment. You don't need experience to be registered but in the current job market, you WILL need experience (and lots of it) to get a job in Ontario. No hospital or other facility will be willing to help you with your paperwork because they're not going to have a job for you so there will be no benefit to the facility. The economy in Ontario is quite fragile at the present and with health care being a provincially funded service, there are very few jobs available for anyone, even those nurses who have lived in Toronto or some other part of Canada all their lives and have decades of experience. A friend of mine has a Master's degree and is a pediatric nurse practitioner with more than 20 years of experience who moved to Ontario this past summer for her husband's job. She's still looking for work.
You will need to obtain your criminal records check through the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police). You need to prepare yourself for a lot of expense, a lot of waiting on documentation, a lot of waiting to have the documentation assessed, a lot of frustration and many challenges.
