In June 2019, some 28% of resident doctors surveyed stated that they had been asked questions in a hiring interview as to whether they intended to have children. In 2016, this figure had been much the same. Despite much lobbying of healthcare establishments and the government since 2016, nothing has changed. To have this practice cease, and in view of government inaction, we have filed an action in Quebec Superior Court against the Quebec Ministry of Health and Social Services (MSSS) and the Attorney General of Quebec on behalf of all resident doctors who have been the victims of this discriminatory practice.

However, we believe that this extended role must be more circumscribed, that the training should be adapted to their new responsibilities and that a certification exam on their knowledge and skills is necessary. This is what the FMRQ emphasized at the November 12 parliamentary commission in Quebec City studying Bill 43 amending the Nurses’ Act and other legislative provisions to improve access to health services.
