Registration requirements for doctors, physicians and surgeons to work in Canada - useful links

Updated: Jan 22






Since launching HealthJobHub.com in July 2018, the number #1 enquiry I receive everyday from jobseekers is, "can you find me a job in Canada?".


The answer is yes and no. Yes, because our jobs platform, healthjobhub.com, is fully populated with healthcare jobs across Canada which candidates can search and apply directly to employers. No because jobseekers need to first register with the relevant professional body in order to get a license to practice in Canada.


Therefore we are taking the initiative at HealthJobHub.com to consolidate a list of useful links for candidates to help find the registration requirements they need.


Our first series of useful links focuses only on Physicians and Surgeons as follows:
