Northern Specialist Locum Programs

The Northern Specialist Locum Programs (NSLP) provides replacement and vacancy specialist locum coverage to designated Northern Ontario communities. The NSLP consists of two programs:

  • Urgent Locum Tenens Program for Specialists
  • Respite Locum Tenens Program for Specialists

The key factor differentiating between the two programs is community eligibility based on specialist complement, vacancies and active recruitment.

Since October 2008, the NSLP has been administered by the Ontario Physician Locum Programs (OPLP) through HealthForceOntario Marketing and Recruitment Agency (HFO MRA).
