In 2007, 22.4% of Canada's physicians were graduates of foreign medical schools, compared to a high of 33.1% three decades earlier. Changes in the number of this source of supply of medical professionals are a critically important component of our understanding of the overall physician supply in Canada, now and into the future. This analysis is based on data from Scott's Medical Database (SMDB) at the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the results of the 2007 National Physician Survey (NPS), and it examines the following important questions about the evolution and behaviour of Canada's IMGs over the past four decades:

  • Have IMGs increased or decreased as a proportion of Canada's provincial, territorial and national physician workforces?

  • What countries have Canada's IMGs tended to be trained in and have those countries changed over time?

  • What portion of IMGs are immigrants and what portion are of Canadian origin who received their medical degrees elsewhere?

  • Once in Canada, do IMGs tend to be more mobile than Canadian-trained physicians?

  • What is the urban versus rural distribution of IMGs?
