All residents working within Saskatchewan are to be covered by Canadian Medical Protective Association (CMPA) for liability insurance. The Employer (University of Saskatchewan) agrees to pay one hundred percent (100%) of the cost of CMPA coverage for all Residents, excluding Type B Residents. It is understood that the type of coverage provided under this benefit will not include work performed outside the Resident’s normal Program, aka “moonlighting”.

This insurance plan is considered the best in the country when compared to other plans available to residents. This coverage goes with you when you complete residency to practice anywhere in the country and is paid for you during your residency. Free insurance? Sign up!
