Recruitment and Retention Program

The purpose of this program is to promote the recruitment and retention of physicians in Yukon by way of financial incentives.

Fee for Service and alternate payment physicians are eligible for recruitment and retention benefits and are required to sign a Service Agreement indicating their intention to reside and practice in the Yukon for a minimum period of three consecutive years. 

Two levels of benefits have been established.  Physicians will be eligible for full-time or part-time benefits depending on insured services earnings (full-time physicians provide $125,000 or more in insured services and part time physicians provide $50,000 to $125,000 in insured services).
