Canadian Telehealth Regulations

If you’re looking for a bird’s eye view of regulations regarding Telehealth in Canada and, more specifically, in your province, this Guide offers a quick look at telehealth regulations based on your location and discipline.

We've collected these regulations from resources we could find. If there are others we're missing, please email support@janeapp.com to let us know.

Please Note: Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Naturopathic Doctors have been less likely to offer telehealth services historically and so resources are still being created on how they can best manage their practices with a telehealth component during COVID-19.
