The Doctor Shortage in Ontario

There is a very great challenge facing the Canadian healthcare systems today.  It is the ever increasing shortage of doctors.   While residents there struggle to find an available family practitioner, the government continues to put caps and limits on the total number of residencies in Canada. It is nearly impossible for medical school graduates from other countries to become a practicing doctor in Ontario.  As a result, many of the potential doctors result to heading south to find work in the U.S.

The team at VisitDoctor.ca has created a new infographic highlighting the current statistics of the severity of the doctor shortage actually is in Ontario.
