Retired health professionals needed to temporarily provide assistance in Ontario

By Lisa McFarland posted 15 days ago


The Government of Ontario has taken the extraordinary step of requesting emergency assistance from other Canadian provinces, seeking 620 professionals to support Ontario hospitals, particularly in the Greater Toronto Area and surrounding areas. Due to Manitoba’s own COVID-19 related needs, it is unable to redeploy existing staff to Ontario at this time. However, if you are or know of a retired nurse that is willing and able to temporarily relocate to Ontario to provide assistance on an emergency basis, please contact your equivalent regulator in Ontario to express your interest. Your Manitoba regulator will expedite any requests for information from the appropriate Ontario regulator to facilitate your registration application in Ontario based on your previous Manitoba registration.

Ontario has advised that it will provide temporary relocation expenses for qualified individuals.
