The CFPC, CMA and Royal College remain committed to collecting physician workforce data through other means, and will continue to work together towards improving Canada’s healthcare system.
Please feel free to contact any of us, or check out our websites, for additional physicians statistics or information on physician resource planning.

When surveying the practice profiles and work schedules of a specialty group such as Occupational Medicine, the National Physician Survey not only provides a ‘core’ set of questions on which to base your survey, but also provides information from other physician groups in Canada to which you can compare your results.  The more physicians that participate in the NPS, the clearer the picture.
