MPH: domestic (Canada) or abroad, and how to get experience


Question

The title probably gave you an idea about how indecisive I'll sound in the following few sentences so here it goes:

I graduated from a Canadian university with a BA in Political Science (focus: political philosophy, int'l development) and another totally different and unrelated to my inquiries discipline. As a result, my experience is in, well, research and some odd jobs here and there relating to communications and teaching. I never really planned to work in either field, the plan was always to do a Master's degree or another (professional) Bach'. I've narrowed down the programs that I'm interested in to a couple and the one that stands out the most (for now) is in Public Health. I hear that it's really competitive getting in an MPH program in Canada and schools usually consider experience in the field an asset. My question then is: What sort of work and volunteer opportunities should I be looking at in order to gain experience in the field of/related to PH? I'm already looking into taking some math/stats/health science courses, but I'd like to have some more hands-on experience, even if it means it's through volunteering. Also, I prefer applying to a Canadian school, but I am considering some UK ones, too. Would that damage my prospects of finding employment in Canada? 

Any information would be much appreciated!

Cheers,
N.
