We’ve got your prescription for the lifestyle that you desire. The Physician Recruitment and Retention Program would like to welcome you to a community where life is at a relaxed pace, you have immediate access to outdoor activities and attractions and where you can enjoy life to the fullest at a cost of living that is well-within your means. And its all right here… in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario!
We understand that moving to a new city can be a very overwhelming process. That's why we work hard to make you feel comfortable and welcome in your new home and community. From the initial site visit, you will meet potential new colleagues and community members, both happy to assist in the recruitment process. You will quickly get to know why we love where we live.
Once you make the decision to make Sault Ste. Marie your new home, you can rest assured that your transition will go as smoothly as possible. Understanding that each person and family has various needs, we will work with you to find housing, daycare options, schools to name just a few. No request is too big or small!
You will need to do a professional and personal needs assessment before any site visit. We tailor each visit based on your assessment and family’s needs. During your visit, we encourage and facilitate introductions to potential colleagues.
Our team will help with the process of job acceptance, moving, and settlement. We often help secure housing, register children to school, and help family members join community activities.
