    BC, ON, and AB are undergoing hiring freezes and budget cuts. The lowermainland of BC and the urban areas of the other provinces are very hard job markets to crack unless you have specialized skills. Think OR or ICU.

    Have you considered joining a professional association like the Canadian association of critical care nurses? One of the benefits of joining a professional association is the ability to network with nurses from across Canada at the conferences. If this years conference is being hosted near you, then suggest you not only plan to attend, but also find out if you can volunteer for the conference. I have volunteered with a few conferences and the organizers appreciated having volunteers to help with preparations prior to and during the conference.
