Canada's Policy and Programs for Employment and Social Development

Many MMI stations will call upon the applicant to propose a health policy that would improve the country. Knowing more about government initiatives to reduce health inequities will always be beneficial, especially with regards to high-yield topics like Indigenous health, rural health, and homelessness. I would recommend checking out all of the links under the "Social development" heading. My personal favourite is the "Housing First" approach under the Reaching Home: Canada's Homelessness Strategy link; it's a radical but convincing way to end homelessness in Canada while improving social capital and resources for people experiencing homelessness.

As time goes by, I'm starting to realize that I'm not too certain or passionate about a career in medicine. How can I be certain or what can I do to rule out whether medicine is a good career for me or not?

I'm really hoping to be admitted into medical school. I know extracurriculars are very important. Do you have any extracurriculars that you would recommend I try out or to do?
