21 Aug 2012


Immigration News

The national shortage for qualified skilled professionals has given rise to the demand for nurses across Quebec. Quebec has become Canada’s recent found hotspot for health care industry.

Canadian Nurses Association estimates a requirement of 60,000 nurses by 2022, if the same growth is continued in healthcare. Qualified nurses in Quebec have competitive wages and healthy work environment. The main reason that has resulted in this shortage is the ageing population. Demand for health care has grown due to the service requirement of an ageing population.

The hiring for nurses is going throughout Quebec, including both urban and rural areas. Opportunities for nurses are in different healthcare units. Some of them are:

  • Registered nurses
  • Nurses for the Intensive Care Units
  • Nurses for Geriatric Wards
  • Technician Nurses
  • Nurse Educator
  • Nurse for Recovery Rooms

Quebec has a massive healthcare network and the labour conditions and wages differ from place to place. Nurses from Montreal receive a salary of 28-40 Australian Dollar per hour.

Two new vast projects are coming up in Montreal metropolitan area. The Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montreal (CHUM) and the McGill University Health Centre will be completed and start services by 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Nurses interested to work in Quebec must be certified by the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec to practice.
