Are you a physician practicing medicine in British Columbia? Are you and/or your spouse having or adopting a baby or planning a pregnancy in the period of April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015?

If you are, then it is important to take advantage of the Parental Leave Program, one of the Negotiated Benefits administered by Doctors of BC. In addition to pregnancy benefits for female physicians, the Program provides parental benefits for male physicians and adoptive parents. Benefits are payable for up to 17 weeks, at the rate of 50% of eligible income up to a maximum of $1,000/week. Read more.
