Success story of Canadian-Filipino Nurse: Part II

Canadian-Filipino Nurse working in Canada!

Canadian-Filipino Nurse working in Canada!

I hope you all had a chance to check out our last article which was part I of our interview with Canadian-Filipino Nurse Mark Estoesta. If you haven’t you can find it here: http://filipinonurses.org/index.php/2013/01/success-story-of-canadian-filipino-nurse/

I’m sure you are all wondering how was the nurse certification process? Was it difficult?

“It varies from one province to another. Everything was straightforward here in Newfoundland. All they asked of me was my work experience (if applicable), IELTS and a few more things. Every province has its own governing body for nurses so you have to go by which province you decide to settle in before you get in touch with the Nursing Council for your registration. After I submitted all my requirements, they have given me a temporary permit, which is a temporary license as a Graduate Nurse to practice nursing for 8 months. It was mandatory to take the exam within 8 months which I did and passed, finally obtaining my license to practice and officially a Canadian RN!”

Citizenship and Immigration Canada are currently working to improve the immigration system to attract the best and brightest to Canada. In the face of such stiff competition from other immigrant hungry countries I asked Mark – With so many different countries looking for nurses why did you choose Canada?

“Canada is a very rich and diverse country. People are treated here with equality and respect regardless of your ethnicity, culture, and religion. I couldn’t believe it when I learnt that the Philippines, being a really small country, has currently twice the population of Canada which is over 33 times bigger than the Philippines.”

Unlike some other immigration programs, an interview will most likely occur when you apply under the Quebec program. This is standard procedure and they will assess your knowledge of Quebec and other factors that they believe will help you adapt to life in Quebec. I realize that this can be a stressful event as an applicant can feel a lot of pressure. As part of my service agreement I always personally coach my clients before their interview to alleviate their anxiety and help them excel in their interview.  I asked Mark how did your interview go?

“My interview went successfully! That was the most memorable day of my life.  Canadim helped me prepare for the interview. One of the biggest parts of my preparation came from my own dedication in studying French, of course. My interview was entirely in French. It took me about 4 months to be able to speak conversational French and to pass my interview with flying colors. Hooray! (Although I must admit I mostly forgot how to speak French now since I’ve been living here in Newfoundland for more than a year). There are a lot of institutions and resources available for learning the French language should anyone need to pass a French exam/interview.”

Apart from being a great client Mark is also a great ambassador to all Filipino Nurses out there who are looking for a better life in Canada!

What would you tell a nurse in the Philippines who was considering immigrating to Canada?

I always tell my friends from the Philippines to come over as soon as they have decided. Working here in Canada is a great opportunity to enhance your career and your way of living. Canada is in need of a lot of nurses to work here so while the opportunity is still there, make the initiative and grab it. In addition, immigration laws change from time to time, who knows, in the future, they may not be in high demand for nurses anymore also due to a number of foreign nurses coming over from different parts of the globe.

    How much is it cost if i want to become immigrant in Canada,i am a filipino working in Hongkong for 15 years now…

    • Hi Marilou,

      Thank you for taking the time to write to us!

      At Canadim we use a performance-based milestone billing scheme so you only pay for results on your immigration file.

      That being said our professional fees vary depending on how many people are included in your application. The reason we do this is to ensure that you only pay for the level of service you require.

      We endeavor to keep our professional fees as low as possible.

      If you want to know more about our services and if you are eligible contact us today!

      Sincerely,

      The Canadim Team!

    If i want to apply as an immigrants, do i need to go back to my country and process my paper in Canadian embassy in Phil or here in HK,could u elaborate the proceeding of applying as an immigrant,we are 3 applicants but my husband and my daughter stay in Phil,can i process their documents here,thank’s for ur reply for my first letter,highly appreciated..

    • Hi Marilou,

      Good to hear from you again.

      Your application will be processed right here in Montreal but if you are called for an interview it would most likely occur in Hong Kong. Attorney Dery has a winning strategy to help you pass your interview with comfort and ease.

      We have many clients who’s family is not with them as they are working abroad. This is no problem at all as we will advise you what documents you need to gather and have you post them to us and we prepare your application on your behalf.

      The very best way to move forward however is to first find out if you are eligible. I advise you to complete a free online assessment on our website and we will get back to you with your Canadian Immigration options.

      Sincerely,

      The Canadim Team!
