同加拿大大部分省一样,萨省正面临医生短缺的局面,并且随着人口老龄化的严重,这种短缺还会加剧。为了应对这种短缺局面,招聘人员把目光转向了国外,如英国和美国。 萨省医师中介机构的CEO Ed Mantler先生,做了如下陈述:“我们集中精力去去英国招聘,尤其是英格兰和爱尔兰,因为听其他省在世界各地招聘的同事说,英国有兴趣移民加拿大的人数越来越多。”
        年初,中介机构派代表去伦敦、利兹和曼彻斯特招聘内科医生。Mantler先生说:“通过这些招聘活动,我们了解到,很多医师对如何在萨省执业都非常感兴趣,一些人正在申请许可证和工作许可证。在英国招聘的一个优点就是,在他们国家的许可证申请和移民处理过程都相当的迅速。”
Agency representatives were sent to London, Leeds and Manchester earlier this year to recruit physicians. “At those events, we did get considerable interest from physicians in learning more about practice in Saskatchewan and some are moving ahead with the process in pursuing what it will take to get licensure and to get a work permit,” Mantler added. “One of the nice things for us about recruiting from the United Kingdom is that the licensure and immigration processes are fairly rapid for immigrants from those countries.”
