About us

In 2015, Maple was founded with a vision to power the future of healthcare — simple, connected, human.

"After years of practice, I started to notice the strains on our healthcare system. I imagined how technology could play a role in improving the sustainability of our system and people’s healthcare experiences across the country."

- Dr. Brett Belchetz, Co-founder and Maple CEO

Improving healthcare accessibility for all Canadians, from coast to coast

Whether you live in a remote community or a busy urban hub, Maple lets you see a doctor from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. No travelling, no waiting rooms.

Technology for healthcare organizations to explore new types of care

One of our proudest moments was launching Canada’s first telerounding program with PEI’s Western Hospital. Using Maple, nation-wide doctors collaborate on patient care at a remote, understaffed hospital.

Pushing the boundaries on connecting healthcare

Maple brings together a large network of doctors and healthcare providers, and millions of Canadian patients into an ecosystem that’s designed to solve some of the greatest challenges in healthcare, including timely access to care.

Canada’s largest online network of doctors.

Our network includes doctors, specialists, allied health professionals and care navigators. Together, we’ve earned over 200,000 five-star patient reviews.
