Quebec is the second most populous province in Canada. And, it’s the only Canadian province to have French as its sole official language.

Why is virtual care important in Quebec?
Quebec is a large province that borders the Maritimes and Central Canada. Although most of the population resides in the Greater Montreal Area, many people live in remote regions, making it tough to find a family doctor in Quebec. It’s important that all residents of La Belle Province receive the healthcare they need. Virtual healthcare in Quebec can help fill that gap. With Maple, patients can see doctors online in Quebec 365 days a year.
What health plans are available in Quebec?
Quebec residents have access to publicly-funded health care under the Quebec Health Insurance Plan. This plan is managed by an organization called the Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec, also known as RAMQ. Maple does offer RAMQ-covered appointments with our Canadian-licensed allergists.
Due to recent regulatory changes in Quebec, Maple can only staff private doctors operating outside of RAMQ as part of our direct-to-patient services. Currently, only a select number of platforms are approved for public telemedicine consultations in Quebec. Since we aren’t one of these vendors, we instead offer private services with fees comparable to rates typically charged by this group of physicians.
What specialists can I see with Maple in Quebec?
Quebec residents sometimes have to wait several months before getting an appointment with a specialist. Maple makes it easy to find a specialist in Quebec and get an appointment in under 72 hours.
