Default Canadian/non-us IMG

Hey all,
Just wondering how many canadian citizens that graduated from schools abroad have matched this year.

Would love to hear about your success and if you feel that Canadians have a more difficult time getting J1 as opposed to other IMG's

Apologize for the noob question, I won't be applying for the match until next year. Is J1 the best option for us Canadians? Will that let us practice in the U.S. or Canada or both afterwards?

practice in US only. As for best?... thats always debatable and quite frankly its becoming very difficult to find programs to sponsor H1. keep in mind that H1 requires that you finish all 3 step exams to be eligible
