JUST THE FACTS | Doctors are not leaving Alberta

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
