IENs wanting to work in Quebec - Page 6Register Today!
- May 23, '11 by maunjQuote from miasatthanks for the very precise information =)) actually, right now, i already have my application kit. as of the moment i am gathering my requirements so that i would be able to mail it again and wait for 3-4 months . =) i also did call the OIIQ already and they said my name was already registered. Can i pm you? if its okay with you. =) Do you have an email address miasat? =) thank you. mine is email@example.comHi! i haven't been reading this site. i hope you still read my reply. are you in the philippines now? i dnt think i mentioned this in any of my previous posts, but i applied for assessment of my documents when i was already living in montreal, and had a permanent resident status. i had no agency, didnt have to go through immigration as a nurse. And although I'm sure Filipino nurses are more than qualified for nursing positions in Quebec, I have not heard of any recruitment for nurses in the Philippines. I think it will be more difficult for filipino nurses to get into Quebec than any of the other Canadian provinces. So if you have been talking to a recruiter, please be wary of the information that they give you. Quebec is very strict about the french language requirement, and I dont think they would look towards the Philippines to recruit. They have, however, been actively recruiting french nurses, from France. This is because they finally signed an agreement with France to make France-educated nurses, automatic OIIQ registered. Yes, they don't have to pass the OIIQ exam. In fact, in the hospital where I worked, they just hired a number of french nurses.
If however, you already have a valid visa, and are already in Canada, and are a registered nurse (from the Philippines), it is very possible for you to come to Quebec to work as a nurse. Submit your papers to the OIIQ, they have all the information in both french and english, and get your papers assessed. It depends on their assessment what you will be required to do. After I did my 40-day training, I was evaluated by my nurse manager and preceptor. They submitted the results of my evaluation to the OIIQ as a pass or fail. The other trainee I worked with failed the first time, and had to do an extra month before being given the CPN status. (equivalent to the "graduate nurse" status in other provinces).. so you'd actually have to pass the 40 day training/evaluation process.
Once a CPN, the OIIQ will then give you the schedule of your exam. They will tell you when you will take the exam, and you will be given three tries to pass it. If you don't take the exam on the schedule they tell you to take the exam, that will be equivalent to ONE FAIL. Unless you have a very good reason why you didnt (and they'll require documents to prove your claim)... The Nursing exam you can choose to take in English or French. They give it in both. So that is not the problem.
When you pass the nursing exam... you will be given a temporary license, until you pass the French language test. Or- take a High school 6-level french course..
Which.. I didnt want to do... that's why I left Quebec a couple of months ago... I'm now in Winnipeg, with a full RN license
- May 23, '11 by simounyJust like to post on my progress. I know of a bunch of people who have their kits already and so do I as well. I am also gathering needed requirements right now same as the poster above. I am currently learning french from 3 audio books and doing personal lessons with a francophone here in dumaguete. Wish us luck and maybe soon we can changes address to montreal. Thanks everyone for your insight. Personally, aside from all the negative feedback, I think it serves to motivate and make us try to achieve more in this world. I do hope that we succeed in this endeavor.

good thing you started you're application for evaluation. are you a fresh graduate? i'm in the same situation as yours, also from the philippines (only, we can't talk in filipino here as per forum's tos). i'm only waiting for the verdict of the nursing committee which could take at least a month to arrive.
the thing is, i applied directly thru the oiiq. paid the $600+ fee to open up a file. i think this is mandatory because they can't evaluate your papers not until you pay this to "open up a file" in your name. then, they gave me an application packet which is supposed to be sent back home to the schools, previous employeer, prc, etc. is this the form you sent back home? you should call the oiiq or the micc to follow up and ask the situation of your papers. as for the certified true copies, let your friend back home acquire a certified true copy of your otr from your school. i believe they also ask a certified true copy of your birth certificate so let it all be accomplished before they send them to you/oiiq.
what were the requirements of the micc that you completed?
good luck in your application and always feel free to post more questions here.
i want to know how did u get the packet from oiiq?
how did u get hold with oiiq?
- Jun 1, '11 by marist13Hi Ms. miasat,
I am skeptic about learning french and I doubt that it would be easy. When were you able to move from quebec to another part of canada? Thank you. By the way, I'm still onthe process of sending my application form to OIIQ. Hoping for your reply. Thanks
- hi miasat! i am really curious about the integration program in quebec.. you left quebec and now worked in winnipeg. how did it happen? what is your visa when you were in quebec? i badly need your reply.. thanks!
- hi marist13! i am also on the process of sending a letter to oiiq to ask for the application kit. i also have the same concern when moving to another place in canada while in quebec. can you also update me with regards to this? thanks a lot!
- Jun 4, '11 by miasathi guys. i came to canada with an immigrant visa, family-sponsored. so moving to another province was not a problem.
what kind of visa are you applying for? is quebec open to giving work visas to filipino nurses? is this a program of oiiq?
- @miasat: i am applying for a student visa for quebec.. yes it is the program of oiiq.. how are the filipino nurses in quebec? is it difficult when you're there already?
- Jun 4, '11 by Silverdragon102Can I please remind everyone that questions in regards to immigration and what permit to apply for NEEDS to be asked in the International forum. Better still look at the CIC website where all information regards working and immigrating to Canada can be found
