University is not only hard but it's also expensive. So, if you're doing eight years of school, like someone who is studying to become a doctor, you're going to want to come out of it with a good-paying job at the end.\nMore from the Canadian Income series:\nThese Are The Top 11 Jobs In All Of Canada Right Now\nThis Is The Life You Can Afford Making Minimum Wage In These Canadian Cities\nHere’s How Much A Teacher Is Getting Paid Per Year By Province In Canada\nHere’s How Much A Nurse Is Getting Paid Per Hour By Province In Canada\nHere's How Much A Server Is Getting Paid Per Hour By Province In Canada\nThankfully for doctors in Canada, the national average salary for doctors is comfortably into the six-figure range annually, meaning at the end of the day they are going to be in a pretty good spot financially. But, how much a doctor earns isn't controlled by the federal government.\nDoctors and healthcare workers in general fall under the provincial realm. This means that when it comes to things like regulations, licensing, and hours, it's going to be slightly different for someone in Newfoundland than it will in for one in Alberta.\nOf course one of those big differences across the country is salary. Since the provincial governments can control how much doctors earn, for example by putting a cap on their billing, there could be a drastic difference between them. Nonetheless, these are the average salaries of Canadian doctors.\n1. British Columbia\nIn B.C., some doctors are actually earning a little less than the national average. On average, family doctors in B.C. are paid $273,000/annually, but some are earning more or less than that. Every year the BC government also releases information about what specific doctors are making in what's called the Blue Book, showing just how much some physicians can earn.\nView this post on Instagram Ok I played a dr on tv but these dudes are for REAL! #canadiandoctors #operationsmile #osstudpro #operacaosorriso A post shared by Kate Walsh (@katewalsh) on Apr 18, 2015 at 11:15am PDT\n2. Alberta\nIt seems like when it comes to jobs, Alberta is the place to go. Not only do they have the highest minimum wage in the country, but they also have the highest average physician salary, sitting at a whopping $380,384/annually. This is well above not only the national average but also the averages of every other province.\n3. Saskatchewan\nIn Saskatchewan, the average family physician earns a yearly salary of about $288,995/annually. The government there also has control over how much any doctor can charge for services that are covered by insurance, putting a cap on how much any given physician can make.\n4. Manitoba\nManitoba has a rule that public sector jobs, like doctors, have to disclose how much they earn per year, just like B.C.'s Blue Book. On average doctors in Manitoba $354,705.98/annually, but the highest-paid doctor, working in an ER, is making much more than that at $680,000/year.\nView this post on Instagram Back on IM wards after two glorious months of electives.

Ontario\nUnlike in other provinces, there isn't actually a cap on how much Doctor's can charge for their services. Despite that, they still aren't the highest earning in all of Canada. The average salary is around $360,000/annually, but they also don't have to disclose how much each individual physician earns.\n6. Quebec\nIn Quebec, the average doctor is bringing home around $325,000/annually. It's an even higher number for specialists and surgeons, as is the case in many other provinces as well. Despite not having the highest doctor salaries in the country, many Quebec physicians actually believe they are paid to much and would rather have the money re-allocated to better services for the system.\n7. New Brunswick\nNew Brunswick is sitting somewhat comfortably in the middle when it comes to doctor's salaries, with the average sitting at $302,123/annually, although that number is lower than some other provinces. However, a recent audit by the province found that at least 24 doctors in the province actually made over $1 million in a year.\n8. Nova Scotia\nAs it turns out, Nova Scotia is the worst province for doctors. While they still are earning six figures, Nova Scotia has the absolute lowest averages for doctors in Canada at only $259,368/annually. The salary is so bad compared to the rest of Canada that some doctors have said they wouldn't practice there if they weren't already tied to the community somehow.\nView this post on Instagram A study by researchers at The Ottawa Hospital provided strong evidence that the sooner you get to the operating room for an #EmergencySurgery, the better off you are. Urgent #surgeries are those considered necessary within 24 hours of a patient being diagnosed. Researchers found that almost 20% of the patients whose data was examined experienced a delay.

Prince Edward Island\nIn Prince Edward Island, a doctor's salary is very similar to what it is in New Brunswick. They earn on average $305,091/annually. However, some doctors in the province, who may work more hours and get paid via the fee-for-service method earn over $1 million every year. The highest-paid was an ophthalmologist who made $1.4 million.\nView this post on Instagram Hey everyone! I have gotten a ton of new followers recently so I thought I’d reintroduce myself!

Newfoundland\nAs far as lower doctors' salaries go, Newfoundland isn't very far ahead of Nova Scotia. There the average doctor's salary is only $269,646, making it the second-lowest in the Maritimes and also the rest of Canada. In fact, the salaries became a point of contention this past decade when doctors made demands to the province for higher pay.\nThese numbers reflect averages in each Canadian province, meaning some Canadians will be earning more than that, like those lucky few who make $1 million or more a year, while others may be earning less than those averages.\nBeyond that, this is a doctor's earnings or billables before any fees or expenses they have to pay related to their practices and clinic, which can amount to a lot. And if you still think these doctors salaries are astronomically high just remember that every day, their jobs involve literal life or death situations.
