Your first posting was so clear and to-the-point that I am puzzled why you have had no responses from gvt. here,s a checklist: did you send a
typed letter,
did you identify yourself as a taxpayer...this is VERY important point.
is she fluent in english or french. if no, then you will not get very far, for provincial medical authorities insist that she pass an exam in order to become qualified. she could practice in the alternative medicine field, without access to a hospital. In immigration policy, there is a gentleman´s agreement not to take another country´s needed personnel. Mexico´s doctors might be affected by that. I´d guess that the best route is the way you started, a doctor hoping to further her studies, not to become a citizen. Given Vicki´s information, I would write to the BC provincial health department and the provincial medical board for help. try to get people at the clinic and the local authorities involved. it is pssible she could work at the clinic in a non-medical position until things get settled. once she is in Canada and with a local support system, things would prob be easier. But for medical work, she does need enough english to pass an exam. Why not see if you can google a Mexican doctor in BC?
