He commenced a medical practice at Toronto later that year. He came to Winnipeg in 1905, opened a medical clinic at 661 Broadway, and served as orthopaedic surgeon at the Winnipeg General Hospital and lecturer in orthopaedic surgery at the Manitoba Medical College.

The family lived at 222 Queenston Street and 34 Carlton Street (circa 1923).
