It's been many years since I've visited Canada, but perhaps you may be interested in exploring your career options in Canada. I recently got a brochure in the mail describing physician career opportunities in Ontario, Canada. To learn more, visit www.HealthForceOntario.ca for more information. You may want to look at some Ontario Physician Locum Programs (OPLP) opportunities as well.
