Cost for breech of ROS in Ontario

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have recent experience with the 5-year return of service in Ontario and what the penalty cost will be to pay off the ROS?

It's about 250,000 dollars. Know a guy who left for BC after Ontario training and paid that amount.

You might be able to decrease the amount of years owed for ROS if you agree to work in under served communities, usually pretty far up North.

Thank you for the answers. That's quite the hefty lump sum. Surprising some will be willing to pay that amount since the ROS is quite loosely restrictive.

If you do a 2 year FM residency in ON, you still need to do 5 years ROS.     This is the common kicker that makes people pay out, because other provinces aren't as unfair with time length.

250k is a small price to pay, of having 5 less years in a place you don't want to be in - remember, some people have their lives in other provinces waiting for them :)

A more strategic thing you might consider is doing a short 1-2 years in a community in the North. This may count towards 3-5 years ROS depending on how remote this is. You'd have to talk to someone from the MOH and come up with some kind of contract. This type of thing can be done in the other provinces so I'm assuming it's the same for Ontario.

 

If you then decide to leave after the initial gig up North for 1-2 years, the fine may not be as much (then it would be more like 50k a year for the remaining years). Some food for though.
