How is the Health Care job market in Vancouver?

Hi, I'm a newly graduated physiotherapist from Ontario. I would love to relocate to British Columbia, preferably Vancouver or Victoria. I graduated about 6 months ago and I have yet to find a desirable job in private practice ortho - in which I want to specialize. How is the job market in Vancouver for a new health care grad like me? Ontario is really bad right now. Like I said I've been looking for 6 months now and can't find what I want. Is it realistic to relocate there at this time?

The job market in health care is bad no matter where you are, with government cutbacks in full swing. You might be better off in Victoria, where there are a lot more old people (as a percentage of the population) than Vancouver.

have you ever contacted Immigration Canada to verify the eligibility skills? the cost of residing in Vancouver is intense - housing, as an occasion, is out of sight. the conventional 3 mattress room domicile - no longer something fancy, merely universal - is $500,000. yet once you do no longer concepts commuting, you are able to hire extra particularly in the outlying municipalities. job marketplace? that is turning out to be. Canada is out of the recession and Vancouver is shifting forward. and of path, you comprehend that Canada has universal wellbeing care.

Check out this web site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TN_Visa If you have your degree you are qualified to also look for work in the USA. The job market in BC is bad right now. A lot of the medical people are on strike or about to go on strike.

Physiotherapists are always needed in this area, and is a very lucrative career. You're even able to start your own practices as well, although it sometimes is easier when you align yourself with another company when you're starting out. The following are a couple of sites that might be able to help you with securing a job for being a physiotherapist. http://www.fraserhealth.ca http://www.providencehealthcare.org http://www.vch.ca http://www.phsa.ca http://www.cptbc.org/ http://www.bcphysio.org/app/index.cfm?fuseaction=pabc.home I hope that these sites will help you, and some of them are of the major health organizations within vancouver, as well as the two colleges and associations for physiotherapy.
