As a Canadian Physician who is considering closing your practice or taking an extended  leave,  you will want to do right by your patients,  but are perhaps unsure of your responsibilities and you may have certain particularities that don’t apply to most other doctors.

While we at RSRS continue to assist physicians from coast to coast with their practice closure details, we strongly recommend that you also contact your particular College of Physicians and Surgeons for your province.  They  created a series of guidelines that will help you address the issues surrounding medical practice closure that strikes a balance between the needs of the patient and the practical realities for the physician.  These
guidelines are always being updated to account for things like EMR as opposed to paper issues, pediatric file retention, transfers, follow ups, notification and much more.  For additional guidance, we also recommend contacting your provincial medical association as well as Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA).
