The Parental Leave Program is a benefit program available through the SMA to licensed physicians living and working in a self-employed practice in Saskatchewan. The program provides up to 20 weeks of benefits to a physician who is taking a maternity, paternity or adopted child care leave from clinical practice.
The physician will receive 50% of their average weekly income earned over the previous six months, to a maximum of $1300 per week. These benefits may be reduced by benefits or income received from other sources.
Please contact Joelle Kostiuk, Coordinator, Membership & Benefits, for any additional information.
