    On release, the film received generally positive responses from critics. Culture plus Blog reviewed with 4 stars and stated, "What a great comedy. Lots of funny stereotyping—dialogue and behaviour that is pure mockery, with great cast that delivers over-the-top fun with some serious consequences. Brilliantly directed by Jean-François Pouliot". Anokhi Media gave a positive review to the movie and stated, "The movie crafts a new breed of cinema that caters to a multicultural universal audience, definitely one to watch." Binzento blog gave the film 4.5 stars and stated, "Recommend this film to those that are in the midst of going through troubling times in life, and need something to up-lift their spirits, and give them the encouragement and hope to over come the challenge." The Toronto Star gave 3 stars and stated, "Dr. Cabbie does something interesting. It takes a rather serious subject—the fact that immigrants bring vital skills to Canada that are cruelly wasted—and milks the issue for its comic possibilities." The Georgia Straight also gave positive review to the movie and stated, "Dr. Cabbie likely has all the ingredients in place to attract an international audience."
