The per-call payment system was introduced in BC on July 1, 2013, bringing BC in line with the call payment systems across English-speaking Canada. A Joint Implementation Committee with members from Resident Doctors of BC, UBC and HEABC was formed to prepare for this transition.
Resident Doctors of BC recognizes that strict application of these rules is not conducive to patient safety, resident education or wellness. For example, the common practice of regular weekend home call and night float schedules do not comply with these rules.
Variances are reviewed once per academic year by the committee; a letter will be sent to those involved in submitting the form once it has been reviewed, either approving, denying, or to request more information.
For schedules that do not align with the call schedule rules in Article 19.01 of the Collective Agreement, Residents, and/or Program Directors may fill out the form below.
