If you want to become a doctor for money or prestige or for parents, don't do it. Even if you get into a Caribbean school, you are looking at at least 7 years of hardcore studying / work with little to no pay out. You will acquire a huge amount of debt and get paid peanuts for working during residence. Also, with Caribbean schools, you will probably end up getting residence in usa, away from family in canada and the chances of coming back to canada are pretty slim (due to large amount of exams required). Therefore, really think about why you want to be a doctor. If it's your passion and money and other reasons mentioned above are not a factor, go for it. You are only 28. If you don't have a co-signer and no savings, I am not sure how you would pay for it. I know OSAP helps a little.

Otherwise, go for real estate. It looks like a good career choice considering your social skills.
