1,000 cap for pharmacists has been reached!

If you are a pharmacist currently completing documents but did not make it to the cap, here's what you may do if you are still interested to live and work in Canada.

Get your documents ready in preparation for July 2011. Your occupation may still be included in the priority list. And you better be ready to file your application within a month once it opens up again.

What if pharmacists will not be included?

If that is the case, try the Arranged Employment route or Provincial Nominee Program. This could be of help: How to find jobs in Canada.

You will have a better chance of getting hired if you are registered in Canada. Check out Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada for information on how to get registered.
