The physicians at Ridgeview Medical Centre practice evidence-based medicine and as such, will only provide COVID-19 vaccine exemptions in the rare event that a patient meets the strict criteria as outlined by the AHS COVID-19 Scientific Advisory Group and supported by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta.

Please review the following prior to contacting the clinic to discuss vaccine exemptions: CPSA - Vaccine Exemption FAQ

Also, a timely reminder regarding our zero-tolerance abuse policy. Patients who are aggressive or abusive towards physicians, staff or other patients will be removed from the clinic and may have their care terminated.


We regret to advise that due to staffing considerations, Ridgeview Medical Centre will not be operating our Sunday walk-in clinics for the foreseeable future.

We continue to offer our Saturday walk-in clinic from 10am-4pm; and will also continue to reserve a number of 'same-day only' appointments from 5-9pm, Mon-Thurs.  Please note that these appointments book up fast, so we recommend calling early to secure a time.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our community and thank you for your understanding. 


Ridgeview Medical Centre is a busy family medicine clinic based in the spectacular mountain community of Canmore, Alberta. Our multi-disciplinary team includes 7 x Family Physicians and 2 x Licensed Practical Nurses. In addition to our Family Practice, we also offer evening and weekend walk-in clinic hours; and are members of the Bow Valley PCN.

Ridgeview Medical Centre is looking for a dynamic physician to join our team. The schedule is negotiable; however the expectation would be an ongoing schedule of 3-4 shifts per week, including 1 x evening shift per week (offering same-day / walk-in clinic services) and rotating weekend walk-in / hospitalist coverage. Clinical privileges with Canmore General Hospital are a requirement of the position.

We offer a strong administrative team, excellent PCN nursing support, competitive overhead, and a supportive, collaborative environment in which to grow and nurture your practice.

With all that our spectacular mountain community offers, we of course encourage and support a healthy work/life balance for all team members.
