    I don't know the exact details about becoming licensed in Canada, but I do know that it is very difficult for a foreign trained doctor to practice in Canada, just based on the rules and regulations that are in place right now. I believe at the moment, all foreign trained doctors must write several qualifying exams, in addition to training in a Canadian residency. The catch with the Canadian residency placement system is that foreign doctors are only considered in the 2nd round of selections (1st round is reserved for Canadian students) so it's difficult to be placed.

    Whether regulations will change in the coming years in light of physician shortages and a high 'supply' of foreign trained doctors in the country remains to be seen. Some provinces have begun to make it easier for foreign doctors to practice.
