According to the Department of Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), the employment outlook for the 2016–2018 period is expected to be very good in Ontario. The reasons for favorable labor market conditions are population growth, a steady aging demographic, and a higher demand for nursing homes in the near future from baby boomers. This indicates that there is a strong likelihood of finding stable work in this field, with a promising outlook.

To support the finding of the Department of Employment and Social Development, the Canadian Nurses Association and the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario published the statistical findings that Canada will be short 60,000 nurses in 2022 if no policy changes are implemented. Due to this high demand for registered nurses, our organization is determined to find pathways for internationally trained individuals to start working in this growing field.

Internationally trained individuals in the field of Nursing have to meet certain criteria in the areas of skills, knowledge and licensing to be considered a Registered Nurse (RN), Registered Nurse Practitioner (RPN) or a Nurse Practitioner (NP) in Ontario. To be a Nurse in Ontario you must be recognized and licensed by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO).

Internationally trained individuals can be recognized by the College upon further assessment of their education, experience, language fluency and status in Canada. This process can be time-consuming and overwhelming. Our organization will be able to understand the needs of the individuals who are participating in the program, understand what gaps need to be filled in order to obtain licensing, and ease the application process for those who need assistance. Our organization will help these individuals in every step of the process.

P.D.L.E.S. develops and delivers directly or indirectly training and services that help internationally trained individuals to obtain certification/registration/Licensing and/or to obtain employment commensurate with their skills, education, and experience.

PDLES will also assist its participants in determine their language fluency, and make recommendations for further language study if applicable.
In order to be a licensed Nurse in Canada, you must be a Canadian Citizen, a permanent resident of Canada, or have Protected Status. Once these individuals become licensed, we can assist our participants in finding suitable jobs that match their skill set.

If you still cannot meet the requirements, we can assist you in finding an alternative licensing program related to the legal field, or connect you with an employer who may appreciate your abilities for a highly skilled job.
