Comox Valley

Welcome to the Comox Valley Division of Family Practice

The Comox Valley Division of Family Practice brings family doctors together to identify opportunities for improving the delivery of local health care. We are committed to achieving meaningful change that benefits patients, doctors, and our community as a whole.


Board of Director Opportunity

The Division is currently recruiting a Community Board Member to join the board in time for the April 29, 2021 board meeting. 

Board members participate in board meetings (currently virtually, every 6 weeks) and the Annual General Meeting as well as other Division events throughout the year. Board members are funded for the work with the Division and:

  • commit to the Vision, Mission and Strategic Initiatives of the Division
  • lead the Division and its committees in establishing and monitoring annual goals
  • provide budget oversight
  • ensure regular two-way communication with members, partners and other key stakeholders
  • ensure sound risk management practices

The term of office of Directors will normally be three years; the Board may determine that some or all vacant positions will have a term of less than three years in order to support effective succession planning. Directors may be elected/appointed for up to two consecutive terms.

Please visit the opportunity page for more information or complete the application. If you have an interest in supporting this work at a governance level, please contact us by March 26, 2021.

Thank you, Janet Brydon, Executive Director | jbrydon@divisionsbc.ca.
