By  Editor
Updated October 31 2023

British Columbia is investing $12 million to recruit foreign-trained nurses by making it cheaper and easier – for them to receive their documents recognized in Canada.

This investment is the most awaited step in lending support to nurses educated internationally who want to work in British Columbia. The health match B.C. is thrilled to partner with the Nursing Community Assessment Service (NCAS) and British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM) to promote the investment initiative.

A new campaign on marketing will be included to support B.C. and the provincial website to give information on the help available. The Health Match BC will support recruitment navigation and administrative treasuries to assist IENS in overcoming obstacles and promote them to build and shape their future in B.C.

$9 million in bursaries to support 1,500 nurses to get credential assessments

The latest funding from the westernmost province in Canada involves roughly $9 million in bursaries to support foreign-trained nurses paying the application fees to receive their documents recognized here. That is said to benefit around 1,500 nurses in the initial year itself.

The remaining $3 million will be spent towards combining the procedure of the provincial-based applications for the foreign-trade nurses and the position creator of the nurse navigator to support nurses from the other countries who are arriving in Canada, navigate the licensing, and navigating process.

There is a serious concern that needs to be looked into based on the systematic issues in delivering safe patient care. From the magnified levels of moral distress among the nurses to restricted recruitment and holding the efforts within the occupation, the records offer a transparent look at the gaps in the category of the healthcare system.

The government's new initiative is set to see bursaries that are offered to foreign-trained nurses to balance the expenses of the assessment services, skill evaluation, educational upgrading, and language testing.

Skilled worker programs and PNP programs are the doorways to Canada

These two programs are a hope for those in the registration procedure. The foreign nationals who are qualified to work in Canada as nurses will be permitted to apply their expertise to look out for jobs and attain permanent residency through many gateways in economic immigration programs at the provincial and federal levels, along with programs such as the Express Entry system, Skilled Worker program, or Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP) in Quebec Skilled Immigration programs.

Nurses can qualify for the Federal Skilled Worker program with their high profile scores of the Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS).
