Ontario's Physician Assistant Initiative

Physician assistants (PAs) are skilled health professionals who support physicians in a range of health care settings. They work alongside physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners and other members of the interprofessional health care team.

The PA role is currently being introduced to the Ontario health care system through a 2-year demonstration project taking place in selected hospitals, community health centres, community-based diabetes care clinics and long-term care homes.

The initiative is being co-led by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Ontario Medical Association.
