Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) to soon kick in

With government’s recent announcement that public sector employees will be receiving their maximum cost-of-living adjustment (COLA), the COLA adjustment for BC physicians for 2023/2024 will also be paid out at its maximum level. This means, as of April 1, 2023, an additional 1.25% increase will be applied across-the-board to all MSP fees, and all rates and ranges for Service Contracts, Salary Agreements, and Sessional Contracts. This is on top of the other PMA increases that apply to these rates.
