Immigration and Our Healthcare Workforce

Published on March 29, 2022


We are delighted to welcome back Kristen Winter, Vice President of Human Resources, Workforce Optimization and Leadership at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto as our special guest on episode 4 of The HQ podcast.

In this episode, we discuss the topic of immigration and our healthcare workforce and tackle some of the questions related to the recruitment of foreign trained healthcare professionals. What is the challenge to bringing them to Canada? What hurdles do they face when they arrive in Canada? What are the ethics in recruiting abroad? What more can our different levels of government do to assist the recruitment process and relocation? And what innovative approaches has Sunnybrook taken to help their new recruits?

Join us as we dive deeper into the health human resource crisis and discuss what can be done to reduce the workforce gap that COVID-19 has created.
