    Belgian couple, both physiotherapy students, looking to work in Canada

    Add your physio job on Physiobob.com
    Hi!

    My girlfriend and I both study physiotherapy at the university 'KU Leuven' in Belgium. She is currently in her last year, while I have still one more year to go.
    My family is moving to Canada at the moment, and I have my Permanent Residence card. My girlfriend however has not yet applied for Canadian citizenship.
    We were hoping to go to Canada together in June or July of 2016, as I will graduate in June. My girlfriend will be working as a physiotherapist next year.
    I know we have to contact the Alliance for the credentialling process once we graduate, and I know that after this we have to take the PCE examination.

    Now that you know our background, I have a few questions:
    - Do you think/know whether our Belgian university level Masters' degrees will be accepted in the credentialling process?
    - Are there any people out there, from Belgium, the Netherlands or another country in Europe with a similar level of education that went through the credentialling process and/or the PCE?
    - When we go to Canada next June, I can stay there as long as I want because of my permanent residence card. My girlfriend has no PR card, how can we make sure she will be able to stay in Canada? Do we need to get a visum of some sort? She will eventually apply for citizenship in Canada, either through the skilled worker program or, when we have married, as my wife. Or is there a better path to take?
    - If any of you have good advice or information, please tell me! There's really a lot of research to do, and any information is very much appreciated!

    I know I am asking a lot and thank you very much for even reading this post!

    Victor

    Hi Victor,
    Iím a Physio from the Netherlands, graduated in 2012 and looking to get my Canadian license too.
    The Dutch education system is on the list as will be accepted in the credentialing process, so I think the Belgium one would be too. Itís a process that takes usually 3-4 months, before you can register for the PCE. As a Dutch citizen I am allowed to stay in Canada 6 months at a time, as a visitor, without a visa. I believe this is the same for Belgian citizens (

    If you are already in the process of the credentialing I would love to hear from you how Ďeasyí it is. Right now Iím 4 months overseas for Physio work and I cannot start my application until I am back in the Netherlands in September (2016).
    Kind regards,
    D.
