For a start you are not apply for CRNE but license to be a RN in Canada. Starting point would be the province where you want to work. Each province has their own requirements for foreign trained nurse so do a search for the province college (Canada's equivalent to board of nursing) Once you are given eligibility you then have to arrange to come to Canada to sit the exam. Only available 3 times a year in Canada. Much has already been written about the CRNE in both the Canadian and International forum as well as the process on applying to the province and sorting out a work permit. Please take the time to search for these threads and have a good read especially in the thread regarding working in Canada here in the International forum
