To be fair, doesn't Canada have a more in depth education requirement?I doubt there are many places that will let you work in the US with a Canadian Certification.
I have seen from many different websites, including here; that Canada won't allow US medics to come work there without going through their programs.
I can answer this one for you in one sentence, because I am a medic from Alberta and have just moved to Texas and am going through the exact hoops you are talking about. Study where you want to work!! It is a HUGE deal to try to get your medic reciprocity here in the states, no matter what country you're coming from. Time, money, frustration, patience. Sooo worth it in my position, but if you're at the starting line and you legitimately have a choice, go to school in the states if you want to work there eventually (and you actually have the possibility of immigrating...you didn't specify how you're getting to the states in your question). You can PM me if you want to.I am a Canadian and want to become a paramedic in the US. I have not taken any courses prior and wonder if it will be a smart choice to stay in Canada to study my program or straightly apply to schools in the US.
