There were over 630 Nigerian trained doctors practicing in Canada as of 2020.
This is based on information provided by the Canadian Medical Association.
The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) is responsible for uniting medical professionals at the national level in Canada to drive quality in strong and accessible healthcare systems as well as enabling welfare and diversity in the medial culture of the North American Country.
