So i just finished my bachelors last year in electrical engineering with honours. However, I have been thinking about it for a while and my real passion is for a career in physics. Would I be able to sign up for a post grad physics course in USA/Canada or in Australia?

Thanks

Probably not without some (a lot) of additional undergraduate coursework as a prerequisite.

This will sound like a broken record (anyone knows what that is anymore?), but you might want to start by reading this thread:
