Life Without a Doctor

1.3 million Ontarians live without a family doctor.

This pandemic has left our physicians burnt out or overwhelmed with backlogs. Many family doctors are leaving the profession and fewer are entering it. This pandemic has created a backlog that is hindering Ontarians from getting the timely care they deserve.

Having a regular family doctor improves health outcomes, reduces mortality, decreases hospitalizations, and reduces healthcare costs.

Every Ontarian needs a family doctor. The Ontario College of Family Physicians (OCFP) is ready to work with the Ontario government to make this happen.
