Section 1: Deciding to Leave and Come to Canada

Each of the internationally educated health professionals that we interviewed had a fascinating story that began with a discussion about how and why they decided to leave their country of origin and/or training and come to Canada. The findings are organized in terms of the traditional 'push' and 'pull' factors evident in much of the literature, but as stated in the introduction, we fully appreciate that these are difficult to tease apart and further,there are broader contextual factors at play both in the decision to migrate in the first place, and the country of intended destination. Equally, some of our participants felt uncomfortable at times with this distinction, insisting instead that they took a more holistic view in making their decision to come to Canada.
