Canada What to do during this time?

im an IMG graduated in jan 2010 and am currently residing in Canada being a permanent resident here. i gave USMLE step 1 on the 9th of may and am registered for the Canadian evaluation exam MCCEE and usmle step 2 for september.
have to take CS yet
i dont think i would be able to apply residency for the next match. Can someone from the forum staff give me some information regarding what SHOULD i do in the meanwhile which would be considered worthwhile on my CV and would fill the gaps.
in canada getting an observation spot is very tough before MCCEE.. so please keeping in mind my current status would someone please give me a few options which r preferred by Program Directors.

Your best option is to come to USA and get USCE.
