Newfoundland and Labrador 

On January 9, 2023, Newfoundland and Labrador announced that the provincial government was preparing to recruit physicians and nurses from Ireland to fill vacancies in the province. Ireland has been selected due to its physician training standards being comparable to those in Newfoundland and Labrador, along with the vast opportunity for recruiting nurses who are eligible for licensure. 


The province’s Ministry of Health and Community Services will send a team to Ireland to raise awareness of Newfoundland and Labrador as an ideal immigration destination. 


The team headed for Ireland this week will be headed by the Honorable Tom Osborne, the minister of health and community services. In order to promote Newfoundland and Labrador as attractive immigration destinations, the team will visit a number of cities. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Newfoundland and Labrador, the College of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Regional Health Authorities will all have representatives on the team.


The team will look for hiring options for nurses who fulfill equivalent license requirements because Ireland’s training standards for doctors are equivalent to those in Newfoundland and Labrador. Additionally, a large number of excellent medical and nursing schools were picked for the region.

The provincial government has made a substantial investment of $30 million to attract and retain healthcare professionals.
