That entire nation, a beautiful place for the most part with great people for the most part, is without question the most cucked place in the world. Again, not everyone but enough Canadians are that they keep electing Justin Trudeau and importing third world shitheads by the thousands. Now their vaunted “free healthcare” system is about to replace White doctors with African witch doctors and Caribbean voodoo priests.
The federal government announced Wednesday it will use Canada’s immigration system to recruit more in-demand health-care workers as the country grapples with a severe shortage of some professionals in the field, such as family doctors.
Speaking at an event in Bedford, N.S., Immigration Minister Sean Fraser and Health Minister Jean-Yves Duclos unveiled a new dedicated “express entry” stream for health professionals in the economic immigration program.
They said a notice will soon go out to 500 foreign health workers inviting them to apply for permanent residency in Canada.
Another 1,500 workers will get an invitation next week — a staggered launch for a program that is expected to be well subscribed.
The invitations will go to foreign doctors, nurses, dentists, pharmacists, physiotherapists and optometrists as part of a push by the federal government to deal with a health-care crisis that is, in large part, a staffing crisis.
The situation is dire. An estimated six million Canadians do not have a family doctor, according to research compiled by Angus Reid. Canada is short of specialists as well.
The physician shortage is expected to be even more acute in just five years’ time. Federal data suggests Canada will be short some 44,000 doctors, including over 30,000 family doctors and general practitioners, by 2028.https://archive.vn/DObtW
They are also going to “streamline” licensing so doctors who are not qualified can get licenses to practice in Canada. What could go wrong?
Here we see one problem with socialized medicine. In order to become a doctor, you must commit a significant chunk of your young adult years to schooling. Our daughter is 26 now and is going into her fourth year of medical school so she will be 27 when she graduates. Add in 3 years of residency and now she is 30 before she starts making that big doctor salary. Or you could become an actuary with a four year degree and make a six figure income while med students are still slogging through medical school. The large salaries of doctors is based on the rarity of people who can do the academic work and the invest of time. I don’t have the stats in front of me but I suspect Canadian doctors make much less than their American counterparts because they work for the government. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.
It is just a pain in the ass, and that goes up the more you have to deal with government red tape. My dad retired while he could have easily kept practicing medicine for another decade because he was just fed up with the bullshit.
Canada, rather than finding out ways to encourage actual Canadians to pursue medicine instead does what globalist shills always do: imports swarthy skinned foreigners to do the jobs they have discouraged Whites from doing. As a result, the quality of medicine in Canada will continue to decline and Canada will become browner.
That is what is called “progress” in the West.
