September 14, 2018 - The OMA holds the position that reporting physician billings without context provides an incomplete and sometimes misleading picture of Ontario’s physician pay structure. Physician billings constitute private, personal information. Privacy is an important and fundamental right in Canada that is protected by legislation and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. We strongly believe physician billings in Ontario should therefore be disclosed only by an Act of the legislature, as is done in other provinces — and not at the discretion of a newspaper. Because of its importance, the OMA will seek leave to appeal to the Supreme Court to decide this important issue.


Dr. Nadia Alam,
President of the Ontario Medical Association
