ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the search for foreign-trained physicians by the Canadian government. Currently, the provinces are battling the shortage of doctors. To solve this problem, the country is offering incentive packages to attract foreign physicians to work in the country. Provincial governments establish headhunting agencies to enhance the efforts of individual hospitals and health regions. They list positions on sophisticated Web sites and prescreen candidates from the U.S. and Great Britain before traveling to meet the recruits.
