Compensation for general practitioners varies widely across Canada. It is usually relative to the cost of living for the area of the country in which you choose to practice. Like anywhere in the world, the cost of living and income earned is relative to whether you are living in a small town or a large urban area.
There are several compensation models available across Canada. Some positions are salaried while most are based on a Fee-for-Service (FFS) model. Sometimes there is a blend of both. There may be incentive payments for practicing in rural or remote areas. A Fee-for-Service model of compensation means you are paid by the number of patients you see. This is favoured by many family doctors as earnings can be considerably more than being on a salary.
One thing for sure is you will live a good life, in a nice home, near great schools, and with plenty of recreational opportunities nearby.
