Can this have any effect on enrollment in Maritimes medical schools? 

Not automatically - but if they wanted to increase seats, they probably could use this for justification.  They seem to have a strong, healthy ratio of residency positions to medical seats.

Anyone know if the emerg seats are CCFP or royal college programs?

Good question. I would assume their CAC program is a bit of an oddball and couldn't support another two, but opportunistically would be very handy and effcient if they could retain those trainees after.
