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 (seethedoctor.ca) is designed to:
- Provide free access to virtual primary care from 8 a.m. to midnight for those who don't have a family doctor or who can't access them during the pandemic. French language services are available between 4 a.m. and 8 p.m., 7 days a week.

- 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.
