Rural Relief Program

Do you require a rural relief locum?

If you are a general practitioner/family practitioner who is currently working in a rural community in Saskatchewan with fewer than five practicing physicians, then you are eligible to apply for a locum. Requests can be made for periods of four to 14 days, to a maximum of 30 days per year.

To make a request to the Rural Relief Program, please visit our Rural Relief Program web portal.

The SMA will contact you (approximately one month in advance) to let you know if a locum physician is available to fill your request.
