Good point. I have observed that few people with PhDs from countries with education systems that are not so recognized use their PhDs for post doctoral positions or as an entry qualification for a second doctorate. Technically, if you have a good publication record, you might use it to get a higher doctorate from a UK University but this is not easy. Some professional associations recognize foreign PhDs for admission. If the degree is in Psychology, a person might get entry as a psychologists in Alberta provided that the person can pass the entrance exam and get the required experience. I personally know a friend of mine with a PhD from an African school that completed a post doctoral fellowship at a Canadian school, he works now as an adjunct for several schools. Notice that in Canada, salaries for adjuncts at the University level are not terrible, public universities pay around 10K per course and are unionized positions so it is a feasible career. If your PhD from UCN is in accounting and you get it recognized by a recognized evaluation service, a lecturer position (teaching not research) might be feasible if the person has a CPA certification. There are other fields that might benefit from this PhD. I can think about nursing, nurses can get an administration position with a graduate degree that pay in the 100K plus range.
