To better safeguard your health, we now offer virtual care, from initial assessment to delivery of care and education, in a method that works best for you. Individual virtual care can be delivered by telephone, and/or personal video*. Virtual group education programs are also available for registered clients.  Onsite care is also available.

Ontario Virtual Care Clinic

The Ontario Virtual Care Clinic is a free-to-patient, easy-to-use, safe and secure online service, available 24/7, that provides access to a family doctor to any Ontario resident with a valid OHIP number for simple health requests.

The service is primarily for those who have medical issues unrelated to COVID-19, and who do not have access to a family doctor. Patients are advised to seek care from their family physician first. The service is not designed to replace usual care.

The Ontario Virtual Care Clinic ( is designed to:

  • Provide free 24/7 access to virtual primary care for those who don't have a family doctor or who can't access them during the pandemic
  • Assess and treat non-urgent, non-COVID-19 medical issues by secure video and audio, minimizing in-person contact
  • Relieve pressure on Ontario’s health care system, including ERs, walk-in clinics, hospitals and other in-person clinical settings
  • Primary Care Services for Non-COVID-19 related issues

After entering the passcode “health,” patients are prompted to provide a valid OHIP number and some basic information to register.

They are then placed in a “virtual waiting room” to wait to connect with the next available on-call physician. 

Patients should stay logged in and are notified on their cell phone and by email when a doctor is ready to connect.

Patients and doctors can connect by video or audio via the online platform; the physician can default to an audio call if required.

The Ontario Virtual Care Clinic is a province-wide collaboration between Ontario Health (OTN), Ontario Medical Association (OMA), Ontario MD (OMD), and their scheduling partner Metricaid, Novari Health (technology vendor), with Canada Health Infoway (technology/model/project funder), and support from the Government of Ontario.
