Online doctors in Alberta
Alberta is a western province that’s home to six UNESCO world heritage sites, two National Hockey League teams, and nature spectacles, such as Banff National Park.
Alberta has many rural towns and villages. Access to health care in these areas can be scarce. Often, people have to travel a great distance to receive care at a walk-in clinic or hospital. That’s why we created Maple — to make online health care accessible in Alberta and the rest of Canada.
