Nova Scotia is the largest province in Atlantic Canada. In fact, Nova Scotia is almost completely surrounded by the ocean. The capital city, Halifax, is home to 45% of Nova Scotia’s population.

Unfortunately, Nova Scotia faces a shortage of healthcare workers. As a result many people wait too long to see a doctor, or never get the help they need. That’s why we created Maple. With Maple, you can see a doctor online in Nova Scotia to resolve many common health concerns.

Whether you need a diagnosis, prescription, or simply medical advice online in Nova Scotia, our doctors can assist you. Now you can stay in the comfort of your home and get the help you need.

If you’re looking for an online pharmacy in Nova Scotia, our doctors can help with that too. They can fill your prescription over Maple and have it delivered to your local pharmacy, or right to your door.

Why is virtual health care important in Nova Scotia?

Nova Scotia faces a difficult problem: there is a shortage of doctors, and very long wait times for family doctors. Virtual health care in Nova Scotia can help bridge that gap. Now, patients don’t have to travel to a hospital or clinic to receive high quality healthcare.

What health plans are available in Nova Scotia?

Nova Scotia residents receive covered healthcare under the Medical Insurances Program, more commonly known as MSI. This program is administered by the Medavie Blue Cross. While Maple is not covered by MSI, it is included in many private insurance plans.
