    j1visa statement of need letter

    Hello.
    I am a canadian citizen and an international medical graduate,ECFMG certified and have passed MCCEE for what I have read on the health canada website that mccee is the minimum examination requirement to get the statement of need letter for the j1 visa. I am currently living in montreal but I would like to practice in Ontario.Could I get the letter from Ontario even if I am not currently living there? Do I need to be a resident of that province? I am going to do my training in psychiatry.

    To prove Ontario residence, you need both a driver's license and health care card (OHIP). The OHIP requirement is a new policy implemented this year.

    Look for programs that are willing to file for H-1 or J1 visa for IMGs. There are a couple of them. You need to make enquires as soon as possible to be certain you are guarranteed a spot this year. You do not have to worry about lawyers, because they know how to go about that route. Take care and the best of luck.
    Keep the faith no matter what the turbulence may seem like. Tough times do not last but tough people do and have every reason to laugh at last.

    You don't have to take step 3 in one of those states, just register for it in one of those states.
