How much can I earn as a GP locum/permanent doctor in Canada?

Locum rates are not fixed and can vary considerably depending on a number of factors, including location, seniority, hospital or private clinic, specialty and the level of role responsibility.

Typically a GP-only locum doctor can earn between $1,000 CAD and $1,500 CAD a day. For GP/ED (Hospital Visitation) doctors and specialists, the daily rate is upward of $1,800 CAD per day. In some cases, the rates will be paid hourly rather than on a daily basis.

GP permanent doctors are on a fixed percentage of billings, with this varying from 65% all the way up to 80% of billings with some clients.
Please note: These rates are a guideline only as the locum market can fluctuate greatly; rates are subject to rapid change.

How does tax work in Canada?

Your Doctor Jobs are not able to directly provide you with taxation advice, and that is why we have a partnership with a specialist financial institution and have close associations with one of the major banks to ensure you receive the right advice tailored to your needs.

The taxation rate varies from province to province.
