# Why are holes the majority carrier in P-Type semiconductor?

It is said that P-Type semiconductors' majority carriers are holes. But based on my current understanding, there should be no extra holes except for those generated by heat (i.e. electron-hole pairs like in intrinsic semiconductors).

Lets assume we have a P-Type semiconductor – Silicon doped with Boron (with an Boron atom in the middle in the image below).
