Steps to be a nurse in Canada?

  1. 0 I'm a registered nurse here in the Philippines. I wanna try my luck in Canada but I want to know how can I be a nurse in Canada? Like starting from how can I leave the Philippines until being a nurse in Canada. I've heard of COLLEGE OF ONTARIO. But I still don't know the process. It's a bit complicated to me. Or if you have any suggestion how to get to Canada. Thanks in Advance!
