    Good Day Sir!
    My concern regarding the program was why is it that if we apply for immigrant visa, we should work in canada where some are not related to our profession,and to be able to practice our profession as a nurse we also need to study there for almost a year which is unfair in our part who studied for almost 4 years in our country and passing the board exam plus have an experience in a hospital. hence we are already a Registered Nurse here in the Phillipines.
    Is there any options for you to come up with this matter… Hope you can offer us the ways which are easy for us to be an immigrant in Canada and to practice our profesion… You can offer us 6 months Orientation or Training to the field of our profession and after that a Full time Job related to our work leading to permanent residency.Hope yu can response regarding this idea. Thank you and GodBless to all Filipino Dedicated Nurses~

    Canada should consider candidate who want to work and contribute to develop of Canada by reducing their scores in (ielts score). mostly Canada should base on writing and one on one conservation because who can read and write can communicate with people. u are speaking with someone is act of listing. too much of taking the exam is wasting of money and time for people who want to work in canada
