Financial Benefits Consistent With Underserviced Designations
Whether you are a newly graduated family physician or an experienced family physician looking to relocate, there are very inviting financial benefits when you locate your practice in the Peterborough Area.

With a combination of local overhead cost arrangements and provincial funding available to those communities designated as Underserviced, newly graduated family physicians can experience very favourable financial benefits by locating in both the County and City of Peterborough.

In addition, very attractive financial benefits related to overhead costs for a significant introductory period of time adds a considerable savings to a family physician's compensation when locating in the Peterborough Area.

Thus, locating a medical practice in the Peterborough area provides both monetary advantages along with value to be realized in the longer term and the cost of living and the lifestyle available in the whole Peterborough area. More recently, however, it cannot be overstated that family physicians in the Peterborough Family Health Team are experiencing compensation levels higher than previous models provided.


In the Peterborough Area communities both public and private stakeholders are poised to offer physicians a friendly and welcoming arrival. Although the quality of life and the lifestyle that is enjoyed by so many is attractive in itself, other assistance is also available to make a move to Peterborough favourable. The following areas are only some of the added benefits to be realized:
  • Assistance with relocation costs
  • Introductory YMCA membership
  • Complimentary or discounted professional services provided to assist with your relocation
  • Introductory rounds of golf at the Peterborough Golf and Country Club and Kawartha Golf Club

Details about locations and related financial benefits are available by contacting John MacDonald at or use our contact page in this web site.
