This Agreement for the recruitment of physicians is dated DATE  between:

{ CLINIC NAME } (the “Client”) and [Physicians For You Recruitment Ltd] (the “Agent”)

The Agent commits to diligently work on behalf of the Client, on a commercially reasonable basis, to accommodate and fill the Client’s need for the supply of permanent and/or contract Family Physicians or Specialists (each, a “Physician”). The Agent does not guarantee placement nor does this Agreement require the Client to exclusively utilize the Agent to fill the Client’s requirements.

The following additional conditions shall apply:

1. An introduction occurs when the Agent introduces a Physician to the Client, whether through providing information which identifies the Physician to the Client or facilitating an interview of a Physician in person or by telephone or other means. An introduction includes the passing of any information about a Physician by the Client to a third party following an introduction by the Agent to the Client (a “Third Party Introduction”). 

2. The Client agrees to notify the Agent immediately of any offer of an engagement it makes to a Physician introduced by the Agent and which is accepted by the Physician and to notify the Agent immediately upon the Physician commencing work for the Client. 

3. For the purposes of this Agreement, an “International Medical Graduate” is defined as any Physician who requires supervision, sponsorship or support and is not Fully licensed to practice in the province in which the Client is located and/or where the Physician will be licensed and working (for the client).

4. The introduction fee is set at $15,000 (excluding GST/HST) for the placement of 1 International Medical Graduate (IMG) in a position with a one-year term or longer (a “Long Term Position”). This introduction fee is paid in the following way by the Client to the Agent: $5,000 once a contract has been agreed and signed between the Client and Physician and the remaining $10,000 once the Physician has arrived in Canada and started work for the Client.

5. For the purposes of this Agreement, “Fully Licensed Physician” is defined as any Physician not requiring IMG supervision, sponsorship or support and is Fully licensed to practice in the province in which the Client is located and/or where the Physician will be licensed and working (for the client).

6. The introduction fee is set at $20,000 (excluding GST/HST) for the placement of 1 Fully licensed Physician in a Long-Term Position. This introduction fee is paid in the following way by the Client to the Agent: $5,000 once a contact has been agreed and signed between the Client and Physician and the remaining $15,000 once the Physician has started work for the Client.

7. If the Physician pulls out for any reason/fault that is their own after the contract with the Client has been agreed and signed but the Physician has not yet commenced work with the Client, the initial $5,000 is fully refundable. If the Client pulls out or cannot employ the Physician due to any issues on their side (including but not limited to the role no longer being available, supervisor or sponsor not approved, or Labour Market Impact Assessment is rejected) then the $5,000 is non-refundable and is kept by the Agent. 

8. If, within three months of the Physician commencing work for a Long-Term Position, the Physician voluntarily leaves the position through no fault of the Client or is discharged by the Client for fault of the Physician, a partial refund of 50% of the total fee (exclusive of GST/HST) will be paid by the Agent to the Client or a replacement Physician will be provided.

9. If subsequent to the Client receiving a refund as set out in sections 7 or 8, the Physician is re-engaged within a period of 24 months from the date of termination, the refund shall be repaid to the Agent. The date of termination is the later of the date on which the contract is terminated, the Physician ceases working or would have ceased working for the Client but for any period of payment in lieu of notice. 

10. For a position with less than a one-year term, the introduction fee is set at $1,500 (excluding GST/HST) per month worked for an International Medical Graduate. In the event the term commences on a day other than the first of a calendar month or ends on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the fee shall be adjusted such that for every completed week (commencing on a Monday and ending on a Sunday), the rate shall be $350 (excluding GST/HST) per week; and in the event the term involves an incomplete week, the daily rate shall be $100 (excluding GST/HST). This fee shall be paid at the end of any calendar month in which the Physician has worked for the Client.

11. For a position with less than a one year-term, the introduction fee is set at $2,000 (excluding GST/HST) per month worked for a Fully Licensed Physician. In the event the term commences on a day other than the first of a calendar month or ends on a day other than the last day of a calendar month, the fee shall be adjusted such that for every completed week (commencing on a Monday and ending on a Sunday), the rate shall be $500 (excluding GST/HST) per week; and in the event the term involves an incomplete week, the daily rate shall be $125 (excluding GST/HST). This fee shall be paid at the end of any calendar month in which the Physician has worked for the Client.

12. Any Physician recruited within twenty-four (24) months of being introduced to the Client by the Agent will be deemed as coming directly from the Agent and the fees as outlined in sections 4, 6, 10 and 11 above will be owed by the Client and will be paid as mentioned above. 

13. If a Third Party Introduction results in an offer of employment to a Physician by the third party within twenty-four (24) months of the Agent’s introduction of the Physician to the Client, then the Client will be liable to the Agent for payment of the applicable introduction fee in accordance with this Agreement as though the Client engaged the Physician rather than the third party and neither the Client nor the third party shall be entitled to a refund of the introduction fee under sections 7 or 8 herein. 

14. All invoices which are delivered by the Agent to the Client hereunder may be given by mail by posting the same by regular mail addressed to the Client at the address provided herein or by any email address provided by the Client to the Agent.

Any email deemed received after 4:30 p.m. (Pacific time) on a business day or on a day which is not a business day will be deemed to have only been received on the next business day. 

15. The Client agrees to pay all invoices within 14 days of the date of any invoice deemed received by the Client. Payment will not be deemed received until it is cleared funds. Payments later than this date will automatically have 10% added to the total owed (excluding GST/HST). If the payment is not received within 30 days the Client will be responsible for all and any costs needing to be paid by the Agent to recover all monies owed in full in addition to the original invoice(s) and includes debt collectors, lawyers and any and all court fees. 

16. The Agent shall not be liable under any circumstances for any loss, expense, damage, delay, costs or compensation (whether direct, indirect or consequential) which may be suffered or incurred by the Client arising from or in any way connected with the Agent introducing a Physician to the Client or from any Third-Party Introduction or from the failure of the Agent to introduce any Physician to the Client. The Client is responsible to satisfy itself as to the suitability of any Physician for the position it is seeking to fill.

17. The Agent is not responsible for any actions of the Physician, negligent or otherwise, before or after the commencement of practice.

18. These terms constitute the entire Agreement between the Agent and the Client for the supply of Physicians and these terms are deemed to be accepted by the Client by virtue of any interview or engagement of a Physician or the passing of any information about the Physician to any third party following an introduction, and the Client is bound by the rules and clauses set out herein. No variation or alteration to these terms shall be valid unless otherwise agreed to by the Agent and the Client in writing.

19.
