Welcome to Cowichan Division of Family Practice
Incorporated in 2009, the Cowichan Valley Division of Family Practice includes the communities of Mill Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Cobble Hill, Duncan, Lake Cowichan, Chemainus, Penelakut Island, and Ladysmith. CVDFP has been formed to support the people and family physicians of the Cowichan Valley; to identify gaps in patient care; and to develop solutions to meet the community’s needs. The Cowichan Division works to foster strong, collaborative relationships, and benefits from a high level of community engagement and collegiality among the medical community. As a result, CVDFP is able to work closely with a range of community partners to achieve its goals, including: Island Health, Cowichan District Hospital, First Nations Health Authority, local First Nations communities, Our Cowichan Communities Health Network, and Economic Development Cowichan.
