The Ontario Medical Association says the outcome of the vote by Ontario doctors on a new fee agreement has been rejected.
A provincial vote by doctors has resulted in 63.1% of its members voting against a new fee agreement between the Ontario Medical Association and the government.
The 4-year deal was expected to boost Ontario’s $11.5-billion physician services budget by 2.5 % a year to $12.9 billion by 2020.
However, some doctors are angry that the OMA did not execute an agreement on binding arbitration, although the association will continue to battle in court for those rights.
The vote was held for doctors across the province on Sunday.
