Happy New Year! New Year, New Adventure. Are you ready to begin your journey to Canada in 2022?

Did you hear? Canada has been “Ranked #1 Country In The World In 2021” by US News and World Report. Canada scored the top spot in “Quality of Life” and “Social Purpose,” too.

Canada received first place in the quality of life category due to respondents ranking us as “No. 1 for having a good job market, No. 2 for being politically stable and No. 3 for having a well-developed public education system.”

Over the twenty years, thousands of physicians have moved to Canada from the UK, Ireland, Australia and the United States to enjoy a higher quality of life, better work-life balance and higher income. Will you make the move in 2022?

Featured Opportunity

Vancouver Island, BC – This modern clinic is located in a small waterfront community. You will join three GP’s, one of whom is from England. The clinic is very busy with an opportunity to gross bill in excess of $400,000 DN (235,000 GBP) before overhead expenses. There is a mix of both appointment patients and walk-in patients.

If you like outdoor activities, then this community is for you and your family. Located on a beautiful harbour, you can kayak, sail or power boat, fish for salmon and go for long walks along the beach. Nearby are forests with walking and hiking paths.

Practice Opportunities Across Canada


Surrey, BC – Surrey is a city of 500,000 residents in British Columbia, Canada. It’s part of the Metro Vancouver area and lies between the Fraser River and the U.S. border. In Peace Arch Provincial Park, a white arch marks the international boundary between Canada and the U.S. On Boundary Bay, the Ocean Point Shoreline Walk curls along Crescent Beach. Migrating birds gather at Blackie Spit.

Our client has seven clinics in the area and is seeking two general practitioners to serve the growing population. Three of the GP’s are from the UK, and all have been with these clinics for more than six years.

The owner estimates you will gross bill $500,000 (300,000 GBP) before overhead. A work week is 5 days of 8 hours per day. No home visits, no hospital patients and minimum admin.

Great schools, near Vancouver, wonderful recreational activities for the family to enjoy. Speaking Hindi, Punjabi or Urdu is a plus.

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – This beautiful clinic has been established for more than twenty years. Recent retirement has created this opening. Each physician has his own office and two exam rooms. Physician services are in high demand.

The owner is very supportive of physicians and will make your transition to Canada go very smoothly.

The cost of living in Saskatoon is very low. This means you can own a nice four- or five-bedroom on a large piece of land for less than a one-bedroom apartment in Vancouver. Your estimated gross billings of $350,000 (210,000GBP) will provide your family an excellent lifestyle and your savings account will grow quickly.

The University of Saskatchewan is well-known for its excellent programs, including a top-notch medical school. Over time, you may become involved in academia or research.

Greater Toronto Area – We have numerous openings for general practitioners in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). These positions offer appointments only or a mix of appointment patients and walk-ins. Either way, your gross billings will be up to £265,000 working eight hours a day. No home visits. No hospital visits.

The clinics: These clinics are all large, brightly lighted, clean and professional with great access for patients.

You can work in downtown Toronto or within 90 minutes. The cost of living decreases the further you are away from the city center.

The City: Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is a major Canadian city along Lake Ontario’s northwestern shore. It’s a dynamic metropolis with a core of soaring skyscrapers, all dwarfed by the iconic, free-standing CN Tower. Toronto also has many green spaces, from the orderly oval of Queen’s Park to 400-acre High Park and its trails, sports facilities and zoo.

The population is 2.75 million and is very multi-cultural. Every possible place of worship will be found along with ethnic grocery stores and restaurants.

Toronto is always a very vibrant city with a wide range of recreational activities.

At Canada Medical Careers there is never any cost to you for our recruitment services and we pay your immigration legal fees! Contact [email protected] for more information.

Vancouver, BC – This clinic serves an underprivileged population. Our client has built an outstanding reputation in the area with its team of GP’s and psychiatrists. Owned by a GP for more than twenty years, you will find all the resources you need to serve this patient profile.

Excellent earning potential. Our client estimates you will have gross billings of $350,000.

The clinic is in downtown Vancouver, only ½ a km from the waterfront. You may find yourself on long waterfront walks to the famous Stanley Park.

A New Year in Canada!

400,000 new immigrants will be welcomed to Canada in 2022. In 2021, there were also 400,000 immigrants welcomed. The opportunities for families are boundless!

Canada has been very fortunate to have sensible government leaders during Covid. No one likes restrictions but the proof of their success is in the relatively low numbers of new cases all year long. This gives us all plenty of hope and optimism for a great 2022.

The economy is soaring. Job numbers have never been better. Thousands of new apartments and homes are being built across the country. Mortgage rates start from 1.94%.

We have facilitated many physicians from the UK, Ireland, Australia, and the USA to move to Canada to begin an exciting new future with a great work-life balance.

MCCQE1 Testing Schedule – 2022

Every physician planning to practice medicine in most provinces of Canada will be required to write the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam 1 (MCCQE1). There is no longer a MCCQE2. When selecting a date to write the exam, you should keep in mind that the results usually take 8-12 weeks.

The following are the exam dates for 2022:

January 26- February 23
April 13 – May 18
July 6 – 27
August 31 – September 21
October 19- November 9

Physicians Apply

Trouble Completing Your PhysiciansApply.ca Account?

As recruiters, we discovered that many physicians have difficulty supplying their information this online service. A simple error, like not scanning all four corners of a document can cause rejection. Which documents do you have notarized? How do you submit your documents?

We have created an explanatory video that is yours FREE, just by asking. Contact [email protected] to receive your link!

If you are serious about practicing medicine in Canada the first thing you should do is open an account with PhysiciansApply.ca. It is an online portal operated under the auspices of the Medical Council of Canada (similar to the GMC in the UK). Every doctor coming to Canada must have an account. This is where your credentials must be verified. These credentials include your passport, medical degrees and more. Every province and territory of Canada has a regulatory authority to handle physician licensing and these authorities (Colleges) will need to access your PhysiciansApply.ca account before you can be licensed in Canada.

Don’t wait! Some documents can be verified quickly, and others may take some time, especially if you attended medical school in a country that is slow to respond to inquiries from Canada.

If you are an IMG, licensing in Canada as a physician simply does not happen without a PhysiciansApply.ca account.

MRCGP and Family Practice Exams in Canada

Royal College of General Practitioners

The College of Family Physicians of Canada is the recognized licensing authority for family physicians in Canada. Those physicians coming from the UK, Ireland, Australia, or the USA will usually not have to write the examination required to practice as a General Practitioner in Canada. Verification of your MRCGP, MICGP, FRACGP, FACRRM, or DABFM will be required. For more information on this certification visit CFPC.ca and check out the Education and Professional Development section. Members in good standing will use the CCFP certification.

We like questions!
