Both are great provinces to work in. Medavie group of companies are who own both services. EHS NS runs with EMC and employ PCPs on a casual/on all basis to start and ACPs are more likely to get FT employment. Great bunch of guys/gals and one of, if not the best EMS system in the country. My opinion of course....Great quality of life in both provinces, NS and the 'fax being the bigger centre give you all kinds of calls, culture, etc.....NF would be awesome to work out of too.

Give it a look for sure, goodluck bro.



Cheers.

I have no idea about the St Johns area.. About two years ago I visited the West coast of NFLD, Gros Morne, Rocky Harbour, Plum Point, up to St Anthony etc.. I spent alot of time just visiting with the locals in the small stores and restaurants and always within the conversation we were asked what we did back home. Once they found out I was a medic (and my wife is a registered nurse) I swear we could have been hired on the spot. The one little town the owner of the restaurant called his neighbour who was the manager of the local ambulance base wanting him to come and meet with us. When he didn't answer the phone they gave us this guys address wanting us to go visit. lol. We didn't end up going. I definately got the impression from more than one person that paramedics were needed in that part of the province, and man its a beautiful part of the country. If you can handle the weather that is..

It's true. The climate there was really a major concern when I was making decision for destination city of immigration.
