TORONTO — Today, the Government of Ontario and the Ontario Medical Association (OMA) announced that they have reached an agreement on the implementation of the final year of the current physician services agreement (PSA). As part of this agreement, Ontario doctors will receive a 2.8 per cent compensation increase in 2023-24 for services provided as part of the publicly funded health care system. The province and the OMA have also reached an agreement that will see an expedited arbitration of the first year of the next PSA, which will provide clarity for physicians in 2024-25.

“The Ontario government recognizes the pivotal role that doctors play in our health care system every single day,” said Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health. “This agreement is more proof of the strong and productive relationship between the province and Ontario’s physicians. We look forward to continuing to work together with the Ontario Medical Association to support our doctors and connect more Ontario patients to convenient care, closer to home.”

“We are pleased the government has worked with us to take into account doctors’ concerns in reaching this agreement,” said Kimberly Moran, CEO, Ontario Medical Association. “We know there is more work to do, and the OMA will continue to advocate for the needs of our members in negotiations for the next Physician Services Agreement and beyond.”

“This is a step forward for Ontario’s doctors, but we still have much more work to do to retain our current workforce and attract new doctors to all fields of medicine,” said Dr. Andrew Park, President of the Ontario Medical Association. “We look forward to continued discussions with government and our members to ensure that physician needs are addressed, and that Ontario has a sustainable health care system.”

Both Ontario and the OMA look forward to a collaborative, meaningful and respectful negotiation process that connects more people to high-quality care from Ontario’s doctors.

  1. What a joke like everything else about this corrupt government.
    They have stolen so much taxpayer money in so many scandals that there is nothing left to offer the doctors or save us in any respect.
    They will have to do a whole lot better than that if they want to keep doctors in Ontario.
