Saskatchewan is taking its healthcare worker recruitment drive to eastern Canada from Sep. 22 – Oct. 6 as it continues to tackle the provincial staff shortage.
Health officials with the SHA and the newly formed Saskatchewan Healthcare Recruitment Agency (SHRA) are hitting the pavement at medical schools and meeting with healthcare professionals.
The Saskatchewan promotion has lined up two career fairs and other meet and greet sessions in Toronto, Montreal, St. John’s, Charlottetown, and Halifax and has an online portal for early registration.
Officials note there have been 411 conditional offers made to internationally educated nurses with some 119 currently pursuing the pathway to working in the province. Also, the Rural and Remote Recruitment Incentive of up to $50,000 has seen 137 conditionally approved offers to date in 54 communities, say health officials.
