Incomes for GPs in Canada vary. Our clients are currently offering jobs with expected earnings of $300,000, $325,000 and $425,000. The amount depends on the type of job – see the vacancies pages for full details.

For the majority of GP jobs , you’ll be paid on a “fee per service” basis and thus the income is related to the number of patients seen. Typically, gross billings (i.e the total you bill to patients for your consultations) will be $400,000 to $500,000 per annum . You should then receive around 65% to 70% of this (the percentage may vary but with all “other costs” included, this is a representative percentage for you).  Your income is then subject to tax (allowing for some expenses such as Medical Defence), giving you around $160,000. After a few years, you should see your gross billings rise, with a consequent increase in net earnings.

 

There are two taxes in Canada – a Federal tax and a provincial tax.payment scales

These are the current tax rates for 2013:

Federal tax:    15% on the first $43,561

22% on income between $43,561 and $87,123

26% on income between $87,123 and 135,054

29% on income over $135,054

 

Alberta then has a single tax rate of 10%.

The typical overall tax rate on $245,000 of taxable income is 34.7% – less than in the UK (39%). Doctors who are self-employed can put various expenses against their gross income to reduce taxable income.
