About Maple

We’re Canada’s leading virtual care provider and we deliver quality care for every aspect of your team’s health journey.

"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

At Maple, our mission is to tackle some of the world’s most meaningful issues in healthcare, starting with timely and convenient access to doctors and other healthcare providers – so that you can feel better, faster.

We believe our technology and new models of healthcare delivery will accelerate the world’s journey towards a more sustainable healthcare system. One of our proudest moments was launching Canada’s first hospital tele-rounding program. Connected by Maple, the program allowed nation-wide doctors to collaborate on patient care at a remote, understaffed hospital.

Maple is headquartered in Toronto, Canada. We’re transforming patient care, creating new models of care and opportunities for patients, organizations, and businesses.
