Default International Recruitment Agencies / Immigration Lawyers

Hi
Does anyone have any advice on international recruitment consultants?
I am an English medical secretary looking into the idea of working in
Canada and have been researching ways to do this for what seems like
ages! Any words of wisdom?
Thanks

They could be used as long as they do not charge fees for their
services. Most recruitment and palcement agebncies in Canada charge
the employer. In conclusion do not pay any money at all for this type
of service .

Charging is illegal in the UK and classed as material fraud. It would be
nice to think this applies in Canada too but I don't know - does anyone else
know?

Employment agencies in Canada cannot charge job seekers - only employers can
be charged.

In Ontario there are two types of agencies, ones that are allowed to
charge and ones that are not. When dealing with any employment agency
do not pay up front for any services.
