This project focuses on how immigration policy is deployed to address health worker shortages. Specifically, it examines how international nursing students negotiate the intersection between the terms of their entry to Canada as students on a study permit and their transition to the health labour force through mechanisms such as the post-graduate work permit. In doing so the project will identify systemic barriers migrants encounter in the labour market and evaluate available policy options.
