Excellent new Statscan COVID series study on Canadians with health education not working in health, broken down by Canadian-born, Canadian-educated immigrants, and foreign-educated immigrants.

Ex. Summary: In a time of crisis and an ongoing shortage of health-care workers, there may be possible pools of labour supply among those whose education is in health care but who are not working in health-related occupations. However, information is lacking on how many of them are readily available and actually capable of performing health-related jobs. As they are not currently working in health occupations, many of them may need additional training in order to perform specific health-related jobs. Nevertheless, a large number of underutilized individuals are recent graduates, speak an official language, have a Canadian education, and may have sufficient skills to provide a source of assistance. In addition, some immigrants might be especially helpful in providing foreign language and cultural
assistance to both health care providers and patients.
