The Municipality of Kincardine is committed to Physician Recruitment, we understand that a vibrant community is dependent on our residents having access to Healthcare.

In 2010 we decided to work with the Town of Saugeen Shores & Bruce Power to recruit physicians and we have done just that. The program has successfully recruited 25 physicians to the area.

Incentive program

The Municipality of Kincardine understands that each physician is unique with individual requirements.

Whether you are completing residency training or a relocating physician, the incentive package offered by the Municipality will be tailored to suit your needs.

During a site visit not only will you tour the community and facilities; our physician recruiter will arrange meetings with both the Municipality and the Kincardine Physicians Group. Discussions will encompass any monetary incentive being offered, overhead costs in the Kincardine Community Medical Clinic and look at lifestyle incentives.

It is important for you to obtain all the necessary information to make an informed decision

The Emergency Department payment is covered under the Alternate Funding Program. The Kincardine Physician Group is a Family Health that operates under a Family Health Organization (FHO)

Locum Opportunities

Locum opportunities are available on a regular basis. There is a need for locums to cover ER /Clinic for local physicians. Locum placements can be on a short term or long-term basis and schedules are flexible to suit your needs.

The Municipality has provided a beautiful home with private rooms for your use during your stay. This home is in a quiet residential neighbourhood within steps to Lake Huron.

This is a great way to discover the area and lifestyle of the Kincardine Rural Physician.
