This chapter reports a multilevel framework for understanding the recruitment of foreign health care professionals, consisting of the global or macro-level; the national, single country or meso-level; and the organizational and authority or micro-level. This framework can help build more efficient and ethical recruitment policies, and provide a detailed analysis of the role of recruiters in Canada. Macro-level policies have launched ethical principles for international health human resources (HHR) recruitment. The provincial and territorial health ministries of Canadian provinces and territories could adopt and impose HHR recruitment policies but none of the provinces and territories has done so. The notion of ethical recruitment clashes with the operation of HHR labor markets in Canada. Evidence of unethical recruitment shows a need for ongoing critical review and attention to the complexity of influences that can subvert ethical recruitment policy.
