Manitoba doctors average $298,119 in fees

  • Print

 Manitoba ranks in the middle of the pack and no one can compete with Alberta, in terms of physician salaries in Canada, a new study reports.

 Manitoba doctors receive an average $298,119 gross fee-for-service payment per doctor in 2010. That's about $9,000 more than eastern neighbour, Ontario, and $12,000 less than neighbour to the west, Saskatchewan. The figures come from the Canadian Institute for Health Information.

 However, Alberta leads all with an average pay of $377,368 per physician. Physicians' pay in Quebec is lowest at $250,000.

 The Globe found physician payment in Canada has doubled in the past decade but the number of physicians has also reached an all-time high. In 2010, there were 203 physicians for every 100,000 Canadians, versus 190 in 2006 and 151 in 1980.

  Health care eats up on average 40 cents of every $1 of government spending.

  Federal and provincial finance ministers meet in Victoria next week and talks will include the nation's health agreement, which expires in 2014. Federal health transfers to provinces and territories have been increasing by six per cent per year.
