Telemedicine/Virtual Medicine

For those physicians registered in another Canadian jurisdiction who are seeking to practice telemedicine/virtual medicine in Manitoba, full practicing class registration in Manitoba is required. This applies for treating Manitoba patients for insured or noninsured services.

There is no separate telemedicine/virtual medicine registration or partial registration in Manitoba for treating Manitoba patients.

Manitoba registered physicians are able to practice medicine and treat patients in Nunavut (either virtually or physically) without obtaining a license to practice medicine in Nunavut.  This is under an agreement made with the Government of Nunavut.

Physicians must also contact CMPA to obtain required Manitoba professional liability insurance or coverage and contact Doctors Manitoba for membership.
