HealthForceOntario administers the Physician Assistant (PA) Career Start Grant Program, which provides time limited financial support to facilitate the transition of Ontario PA graduates into the health-care system to help address patient care needs. The program aims to encourage the sustainability of the PA profession by matching graduates with employers committed to the long-term integration and financial support of the PA role in their organization.
Career Start grants have been provided to support PA employment in a variety of priority settings including emergency departments, primary care and internal medicine.
The application process for the 2018 program is now closed.
