Foreign Trained Nurses


I have a researcher who is looking for data on foreign trained nurses and an age profile of the nursing staff members at various provinces.


Perhaps the Registered Nurses Survey would be of interest.

This service provides custom tabulations of variables collected on registered nurses including age and sex, basic and post-basic nursing education, year and province of graduation, post-basic education in other than nursing, employment status, full-time/part-time status, hours worked per week, location of employment, location of residence, type of employer, primary area of responsibility and position of employment.


As of the 1996 data year, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) assumed the data collection and dissemination responsibilities for the Registered Nurses Survey. Statistics Canada, however, maintains and disseminates historical data from this survey.
