The Municipality of Kincardine understands that each physician is unique. 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, you will tour the community and facilities, discuss overhead costs in the Kincardine Hawthorne Community Medical Clinic, and look at lifestyle incentives so you can make an informed decision.

The Emergency Department payment is covered under the Alternate Funding Program.

The Kincardine Physician Group is a Family Health Organization 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 Clinic or ER 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 neighborhood within steps to Lake Huron.

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

Visiting Physicians have access to locum house accommodations. Two homes were generously purchased by The Society of United Professionals in 2014 to support Kincardine Physician recruitment.

The Society of United Professionals is the union of choice for more than 8,000 professionals across Ontario including 1200 local members who perform technical and supervision roles for Bruce Power.
