Stream: Diab and Nominee Program

stream: Diab said the program is aimed at doctors in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States, according to CTV. It will be easier and faster because this stream targets family doctors from countries with recognized training equivalencies with the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Immigration Minister Lena Diab said Thursday that a new stream has been approved under the provincial nominee program, which seeks skilled immigrants. Diab said the stream would eliminate duplication by relying on assessments already carried out by the Nova Scotia Health Authority and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Nova Scotia. It has significantly reduced processing times, Diab said. That should speed up processing time for doctors who have already demonstrated training similar to that in Canada and who have been licensed by the province's College of Physicians and Surgeons.
