He was discharged with the rank of Captain and returned to Manitoba, where he became a psychiatrist at the Brandon Hospital for Mental Diseases. In the Second World War, he was a surgeon aboard troop ships. On his return to Canada, he joined the medical staff at the Verdun Protestant Hospital at Montreal, from which he retired in 1946.
