We’ll personally help you settle in

When you move to a new family practice team or hospital, you’re not just moving people and possessions. You’re moving lives.

To help ensure a soft-landing and a very Haliburton-esque experience; we are pleased to offer Waterfront Accommodations for physicians.

Starting a new job can often be the easiest part of any move, but we know that you’ll also want to feel a part of our community as soon as possible after you arrive. And for any move to be a success, you’ll want to know that your loved ones are also settling in and feeling welcome.

We promise to help make that happen. We have a number of dedicated people and resources that will help with everything from daycare to housing to your social life.

Please just ask us – we are here to help.


Don’t just take our word for it…


What does life in the Haliburton Highlands look like?

Sampling locally-sourced food and award-winning craft beer. Browsing a local art studio. The thrill of dog sledding.  Skiing at Sir Sam’s. Getting up close and personal with the wolves at the Haliburton Forest Wolf Centre.  Who would have thought that somewhere so naturally peaceful would be so incredibly social!
