    I know money doesn't really matter, but my loans are huge right now. I wanted to find out what the Canada pays its docs (esp FP and psyc) before I go through the hassle of applying for a residency (I would like to be out of debt before 50). If anyone knows of a good website etc. I would really appreciate the info. Thanks in advance!!

    roughly

    FP = 175,000 (CDN)

    Psyc = $220,000 (CDN)


    roughly speaking within Ont.

    hey

    A family friend is Family doctor in Halifax, NS and she gets paid 130,000 cnd a year for 50 hrs a week. That money is her's, except for the huge amount they extract for taxes. But, that's on the eat coast where the cost of living is cheap so you get more bang for the buck and can pay back your student loans.

    Cost of living in Halifax

    I don't know where that misconception comes from. Compared to Ontario and Alberta, income taxes are higher here, gasoline prices are not regulated in Nova Scotia so they are higher, and rent in Halifax is comparable to Ottawa although granted not as high as Toronto. Groceries tend to be more expensive than in Ontario, except maybe lobsters. Did I mention auto insurance, or undergraduate tuition??? Bottom line is that the cost of living in Nova Scotia IS relatively high. However, your point is well taken.
