Does anyone know the job market in Canada? Are jobs hard to find like they are in the U.S.? If not where exactly are the jobs in Canada?

Hi Tiffany, The ultrasound market in Canada is still good and booming. Canadian cities only have 1 or 2 schools that produce ultrasonographers so the demand is high. I know because I moved from LA to Vancouver and working as a Radiographer in a big private imaging. We hire newly grad as soon as they pass the ARDMS or the canadian version CARDUP. I'm going back to LA to study ultrasound and my employer is paying for my school. Here in Vancouver there is only 1 school and only producing 25 or so every 2 years.

Thank you LoganJohn for your response. Are you a Canadian citizen? I'm not a Canadian citizen so I'd like to know the process of obtaining a job without Canadian citizenship. You can email me at qualityfurniture2010@yahoo.com.

Tiffany,

I'm canadian citizen now and applying for one is super easy since your american it took me 6 months to get everything processed, but it was before sept 11. I still think it is easier to apply a residency here. There is alot of american working here as radiographer and ultrasonographer mainly because the jobs are still abundant and the exchange rates is almost at par or at par. Once you lived here you will find the difference in healthcare system and its wonderful.

Hi John,

I am looking into doing the same thing. I'm planning on finishing an accredited ultrasound program in California...and then looking for a job right away in Vancouver or Surrey BC. How were you able to do this? Did you apply for jobs online? Did you go in person to apply? Any advice on the best way for me to make this transition? Should I apply for dual citizenship first before applying for an ultrasound job in Canada? Any advice you could give and information about your experience would be extremely helpful!

Hi, I am about to start a Sonography school in California. It is ACCSC & Board of Education approved. Although not CAAHEP. - Although I hold a bachelors degree, so I am eligible to take the ARDMS exam right after my externship. I am highly considering moving to Canada in the future, and I want to know if the ARDMS certification is approved in Canada....can I apply for jobs and get hired with ARDMS? Or do I need to re-take the Canadian examination?
