Online doctors in Nunavut

Nunavut is the newest, largest, and most northern territory in all of Canada. It’s one of the most sparsely populated regions on earth, with nearly 36,000 people spread over roughly two million square kilometres.

There’s only one hospital to serve Nunavut, located in Iqaluit, and two community health centres. There’s also a shortage of family doctors in Nunavut as well as other healthcare providers. That’s why we created Maple — to make online health care accessible in Nunavut and the rest of Canada.
