Located at the most eastern point of Canada, the province of Newfoundland and Labrador offers a rare opportunity to live a life of health, tranquility and sense of community.
Newfoundlanders and Labradorians are a welcoming people, and it's never long before newcomers feel right at home. With a one-of-a kind arts, culture, and food scene, you'll be exposed to something new every day. And no matter what your hobbies entail, you’ll find common interest groups to share your enthusiasm with others.
As a family physician you will be in high demand and generate a high income. Yet, the cost of living is very low compared to the rest of Canada.
Imagine, as a new physician, for £160,000 you can own a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom family home of 160 sq metres (1700 square feet). There is a large fenced and landscaped rear garden.
With a low cost of living your savings accounts will grow rapidly!
Maclean’s magazine named Newfoundland and Labrador one of the Top 10 Friendliest Cultures in the World!
Newfoundland and Labrador has more than 30 provincial and national parks that conserve the natural beauty and biodiversity of this place – providing opportunities for people to explore and embrace nature.
If you're looking for a slower and relaxed pace of life, Eastern Newfoundland is perfect for you. There are many historic, charming communities to be found throughout this region and they boast quaint architecture, meandering streets, and breathtaking seascapes. After-work adventures comprise of whale, bird, and iceberg watching. Or, a weekend getaway to the French Islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon is just a short ferry ride away. Throughout the area, you'll discover a vibrant sense of culture and artistry – it's all part of the unique charm and personality of communities in the Eastern region.

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.
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.
We like questions!
