MARMICMON IMC work in collaboration with educational institutions in Canada and the Caribbean region and the Governments of the Caribbean to train health professionals.  All of the Candidates will obtain their Canadian credentials before they travel to Canada.   The curriculum use in the Caribbean to train the health professional candidates are developed and owned by Canadian institutions that are responsible for the quality assurance of the academic programme, approving clinical sites for practicum and the proctoring and marking of exams.  We specialise in training health professionals in the following areas:

  • Canadian Practical Nursing
  • Canadian Care Aids
  • Canadian Home Support Workers
  • Canadian Dental Hygienist
  • Canadian Dental Assistants
  • Canadian Early Childhood Educator
  • Canadian Pharmacy Technicians

The programmes are taught in the Caribbean with the support of tertiary institutions which are accredited and approved by Canadian Educational institutions and the Ministry of Education in the various countries.  Admission requirements for all of the above programmes are similar to the requirements to the said programme in Canada.

The Recruitment Process

The Employer will have an opportunity to interview and select candidates two months prior to the completion of their programme at a designated Government site in the Caribbean or a location deemed appropriate by the Ministry of Labour in the Caribbean. Marmicmon IMC and the Caribbean Government will be responsible for the facilitating of the employer trip to the Caribbean.  Telephone and web cam interviews are permissible whenever traveling to the Caribbean is not possible by the employer.

Immigration and Screening Process

Employment Contract
The employer shall employ the selected candidate under an Employment Contract, mutually agreed upon between the Employer and the candidate. It must be compliant with existing laws and enforceable provincially and federally in Canada.

Jamaica Liaison Service Support for Employers and Employees
Candidates arriving in Canada from Jamaica will arrive in the care of the Jamaica Liaison Service.  The JLS will provide orientation for all candidates prior to departure from Jamaica and upon arrival in Canada.  Candidates will be provided with assistance to find appropriate housing, assistance with SIN numbers, bank accounts etc.

The JLS will not interfere with the operation of the employer however with the consent of both parties the JLS will seek to monitor closely the progress of the employee and the satisfaction of the employer and employee.  The JLS will provide proactive solutions to solve any problems that may arise.

Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada are given priority on all vacancies in Canada.  Employers may consider internationally educated health care professionals if every reasonable effort has been made to find qualified and available Canadian candidates without success.

Recruiting internationally educated Health Professionals
Provincial registration is mandatory for most Health Professions. The choice of location for employment will determine which provincial regulatory body should be contacted for registration.  Employers have two immigration options when hiring internationally educated registered health professionals: through the Temporary Work Permit Program or the Provincial Nominee Program.

Temporary Work Permit
1. This option ties the candidate’s employment to a specific facility.
2. Employers must issue a full-time job offer to the candidate.
3. Employers must submit an application seeking authorization from Human Resources and Social Development Canada (HRSDC) to hire an internationally educated worker.
4. HRSDC will provide the employer with a “system number” upon approval of the application.
5. The employer must forward the “system number” to the candidate so he/she can proceed with his/her temporary work permit application with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
6. Provincial Nominee Program: This option is available to assist qualified internationally educated health professionals, to obtain permanent resident status in an expedited manner.
7. This program is employer-driven.
8. The candidate must be registered by the appropriate regulatory body.
9. Employers must issue a full-time job offer to the candidate.
10. Employer and employee must complete the Provincial Nominee Program applications and forward them to Marmicmon.
11. The employee receives a nomination letter from the provincial nominee so they can proceed with their permanent resident application with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Candidates | Marmicmon IMC

The key to personal success is to do more than you have to, so give the interviewer some examples of your initiative and personal successes and extra efforts. If you follow these steps you are sure to be prepared and already far ahead of many other candidates applying for the same position. You don’t want to be monosyllabic but lengthy responses will make the employer lose interest and you might lose your own focus.
