Canada Is Canadian medical graduate considered IMG or AMG?

Hi, I'm new here. Might sound quite dumb.. but I wasn't sure if a graduate from Canada medical school is considered whether a IMG or AMG?

What are the chances like for residency program in the states to compare to other IMG?

I'm going to be enrolled in a Canada medical school this year, my application to medical school in the states has failed but I was thinking whether should I write in an appeal. I was wondering if the chances are equally promising as in Canada, I will just proceed with Canada school.

Hope someone will be kind enough to explain this to me... thank you so much!

If you graduate from Canadian medical school (regardless of your nationality), then you are preferred over other IMGs.

If you are Canadian citizen but graduated from other countries then you won't be given preference.
