Medical graduates from all over the world immigrate to Canada in hopes of finding employment. They are lured by our government to come live and work here with the pretext that Canada welcomes medical graduates and needs them in their workforce. 

They spend many years completing never ending exams and can spend up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to complete their Canadian equivalences, money that most don't have so end up racking up significant debt. 

There are hundreds of international doctors who have fallen in our Canadian government's trap to come find work in Canada. They have left everything behind, their families, titles and years of experience, to come complete their equivalences and find work in Canada, but never actually got hired afterwards because the government, along with the medical counsel, prioritize the hiring of Canadian graduates.

There are way too many doctors who are ready to work but not being hired because the government has restricted the amount of doctors that get recruited across Canada, and especially International doctors.

One would think with the current pandemic that we are facing here in Canada, and with the number of available medical graduates who are ready and eager to start working, that the government would call upon more hirings of doctors, but it's not the case.

We desperately need more doctors to support this pandemic. 

Please sign this petition for our Canadian government to reconsider hiring more medical graduates, and especially International medical graduates who have left everything behind in their own countries to come and be apart of our workforce.
