International Migration Research Centre

M.Walton-Roberts and Jenna Hennebry

published: 2012 | Research publication | CERIS-Ontario Metropolis Report


Using two case study groups this research examines the extent to which nurses entering Ontario as temporary migrants through the live-in-caregiver program (LCP) and as international students convert to permanent status and reenter the nursing profession. In particular, what are the pathways (re-training, language training, etc) these nurses take to gain reentry into the profession? Finally, what are the impacts of this emerging "temp-to perm" model of migration, on the nursing sector, and immigrant social and economic integration?
