Eligible physicians receive 50% of their average weekly income earned over the previous six months, to a maximum of $1300 per week. This amount may be less if physicians are receiving benefits or income from other sources.
Who is eligible?
Licensed physicians living and working in a self-employed practice in Saskatchewan for 26 weeks prior to the date of birth/adoption/surrogacy.
Physicians who qualify for this program are eligible to receive up to 20 weeks of benefits.
