2020-21 CAnD3 fellow Daniel Tingskou' s winning submission to the 2021 Jack Boan Student Essay Competition explores the effects of a 2005 Ontario tax policy on the interprovincial migration of physicians in Canada. His research finds that following the new tax policy, which allowed physicians to split income from privately-owned physician corporations with their family members, migration of physicians to Ontario increased. At the same time, migration to Nova Scotia decreased, threatening the accessibility of health care services in the province.
