“As of Right” Legislation Will Bring More Health Care Workers to Ontario

“As of Right” Legislation, if passed in February, will recognize credentials of health care workers from across the country allowing them to work in Ontario.

As a part of the government’s focus on making health care more convenient for Ontarians, the province is also hiring more health care professionals to better connect Ontarians to the care they need, when and where they need it. This work is on top of other initiatives to recruit more health care workers, such as making it easier for internationally-educated nurses to join Ontario’s workforce and investing to upskill nurses currently working in the province. As Ontario continues to expand its health workforce, patients can expect more services in their community, shorter wait times and greater access to high-quality care.
