Canada is a free country. You can choose any career.
A job can be temporary while getting your license, or it can be a whole new career. Remember, many jobs require specific education and training.
Finding a job related to healthcare can help you understand the healthcare system and keep you in touch with your field.
When working in the healthcare field, remember that you are not a licensed physician yet. Know your responsibility and authority.
Some of the options related to healthcare fields are:
- Research coordinator or assistant
- Laboratory assistant
- Continuing Care Assistant
- Public Health roles
- Care Team Assistant
You can use ISANS’ job search tools to look for possible career paths, helping you find the options that are right for you.

There is now an online sign-up for Intake appointments on the ISANS website for new IMGs who are already in Nova Scotia.
IMGs interested in becoming a client at ISANS and accessing ISANS services can click on the “Complete Form” link under the “Get Started at ISANS” header on the top left-hand side of the ISANS Home page (see screenshot below). Once they click on the form, they will need to answer some basic questions and upload their immigration documents so that an Intake Appointment can be properly scheduled for them.
All ISANS prospective clients must sign up individually, that is, IMGs, their spouses and/or adult dependents must complete their own signup form. Once the forms have been completed and saved, the Intake PA will then follow-up and schedule an Intake appointment.
The personal information collected under the authority of the Nova Scotia Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act and the Employment Insurance Act of Canada will be used only for verification of service eligibility and administration of the applicable service.
IMGs without access to computers or with low computer skills can email Intake@isans.ca directly to request an intake appointment.
