Default Speech Therapist in limbo...

Hello,
I'm a Speech Therapist working in the UK but my husband and I are thinking about a move to Canada. Could I work there? Is there a demand for SLTs? I work with adults and generally in palliative care.
Any advice greatly appreciated!!

Yes speech therapists work but not sure if there is a demand. Have you tried searching on requirements as I am sure you will have to meet requirements enabling you to work in Canada. Probably do a search for the province you plan on living and working in

Thanks!
I'll look into the requirements etc more thoroughly. Do you live in Canada at the moment? Any areas you would particularly recommend in regards to good healthcare?

I suspect that where you move to might be more set by where you can get a job, you would, almost certainly need some sort of registration and perhaps retraining, the profession is regulated and each province has different requirements.

Thanks, that's really helpful.
I think Canada recognises my degree but I will check with each province. Not sure I could face retraining after 8 years 😳

I have enclosed a link which shows reciprocity between various countries for speech language therapy. I am an SLPA (only have bachelors degree) and can say from US perspective there is huge demand for SLPs. Good luck! http://www.asha.org/certification/MultilateralMRA/
