Stop 1 on the CARMS 2020 tour is officially over! I was here for the joint Family Med IMG interview - the province hosts a single interview for all the programs, and you can select where you want to attend for it. I chose Ottawa because my cousin lives here and I never get to see him! It was FREEZING (-30!!) and there was 15cm of snow overnight. Currently stuck on a plane at the Ottawa airport hoping I can get out to Toronto in time to make my connection. 🛫 Off to Saskatoon next!
Even though I’m absolutely exhausted from the ~35 airplanes I’ve been on in the past 6 months, I’ve never had the opportunity to see so much of Canada! Ottawa is our capital 🇨🇦and somewhere I’ve never been, so I made sure I had an extra day to do a bit of sight seeing - that’s the Centre Block of our Parliament behind me!
This interview tour is so fun because not only are you exploring new places, but you’re also checking them out to see if they’re somewhere you could live one day... who knows, maybe I’ll be back here as a resident one day!
