For months, the NDP have claimed that doctors are leaving Alberta en masse.
In fact, the very opposite is true.
Here are the facts:
- The number of doctors in Alberta is growing
- The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta (CPSA), the independent body which regulates doctors, released their third-quarter report in October on how many doctors are registered to work here. It shows a net gain of 246 doctors or a 2.3-per-cent increase from the year before

For the first time in Alberta’s history, we now have over 11,000 doctors registered to work here.— Tyler Shandro (@shandro) October 15, 2020
This puts to shame the lie, backed by nothing more than disinformation from the NDP and thin reporting, that doctors are leaving the province. 1/8 https://t.co/8qXzP5cM3O
