Resident Physician Agreement

On January 25, 2017, PARA submitted formal notice of arbitration to Alberta Health Services, the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary.

Please remember that the existing Resident Physician Agreement remains in effect until a new Agreement is finalized [Article 2.02(b)]. This means PARA members are not without an agreement – all provisions and protections in the current Agreement continue until a new Agreement is ratified.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the PARA office at
