To echo JohnGrisham's point, DOs can practise in Canada as long as they have the requisite residency training and licensure.

Whereas USMD graduates and CMGs compete in the CMG-designated stream in the 1st round of CaRMS. The competitiveness in the IMG-designated stream is arguably stiffer, so if you're debating a USDO school and would like to eventually do residency in Canada, caveat emptor. Optically, USDOs may still have a bit advantage in comparison to other IMGs.
