OK I AM Canadian and first of all Joe Blow from Thailand would never be able to legally practice medicine in Canada unless he was trained here. This is actually a huge issue because if doctors who are trained in reputable countries like Britain and the US were allowed to practice then that would ease our shortage of doctors. Which is probably the biggest issue with our health system and why many waiting times are long.
I personally have never had an issue with the system. Waiting times are for specialists not general practitioners. Which is why regular physicals and screening to detect serious issues early goes a long long way to increasing your longevity.
