A brochure on the accreditation process for internationally educated nurses, including Filipino nurses, who wish to work as registered nurses in Canada has been published by the Philippine embassy in Ottawa and consulates general in Calgary, Vancouver and Toronto.

The two-age brochure, Guide for Filipino nurses wishing to work in Canada, provides insights into challenges Filipino nurses may encounter during their application for accreditation and on the available settlement services in Canada that can be tapped to assist them. It also includes specific information on how to apply in the provinces of Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia.

In a media release, Philippine ambassador to Canada Rodolfo Robles notes, “Filipino nurses who completed their nursing degrees in the Philippines encounter common challenges when they try to work as registered nurses here in Canada. This brochure will serve as an easy reference for them to initially understand the accreditation procedure in Canada for their profession.”

The brochure is available for download from the respective websites and Facebook pages of the Philippine Embassy and Consulates General in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.
