Why Canada?

"Canada remains a popular destination and place to work for doctors and other members of the medical profession.

Canada's publicly funded health care system is best described as an interlocking set of ten provincial and three territorial health insurance plans. Known to Canadians as "medicare", the system provides access to universal, comprehensive coverage for medically necessary hospital and physician services.

While Canada has one of the highest standards of living in the world, Canada also has a shortage of physicians, especially in general practice in the more rural and remote areas of Canada. Being such a large country, it faces similar challenges as does Australia in the delivery of health services.

Covering most of the Northern part of the North American continent and with an area larger than that of the United States, Canada has an extremely varied topography and climate. In the east, the mountainous Maritime Provinces have an irregular coastline on the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic. The St. Lawrence plain, covering most of southern Quebec and Ontario, and the interior continental plain, covering southern Manitoba and Saskatchewan and most of Alberta, are the principal cultivable areas. They are separated by a forested plateau rising from Lakes Superior and Huron."
