Pharmacist - Angelina
Angelina is a pharmacist and wants to emigrate to Canada, but is not sure what information she needs or where to start her research.
Angelina needs LMI to:
Review the Job Descriptions and Job and Skill Requirements for a Pharmacist, to ensure the description matches her current job. Of course, job titles can be misleading and the name given to a particular occupation in one country may be very different in another country.
A pharmacist coming to Canada must have his / her credentials (education and training) assessed before being allowed to work in the occupation. More detailed information on various organizations to contact to have foreign credentials recognized in Canada can be found on the Work Destinations Web site for Canada
Angelina can also find out where Pharmacists are in demand by using the Employment Prospects section of the Service Canada website
Use the Wages & Salaries section of the Service Canada website to see the current wage rate for Pharmacists is in the various areas she is considering relocating to
But Angelina may well have questions or concerns. Emigration is a huge deal! There are many other factors to consider, the factual information may help, but the decision is likely to pivot on consideration of other subjective factors. Family and friends links and attitudes, education and health care provision in the destination country, housing, travel, to name but a few! If she comes to you are you equipped to help, what other sources of support are you aware of, what issues might you expect to be explored? How hot are you on the possibilities for employment mobility in an increasingly global labour market?
